Description

Mark Aronoff has been on the Stony Brook faculty since receiving his Ph D. His research touches on almost all aspects of morphology and its relations to phonology, syntax, semantics, and psycholinguistics. He has used a wide variety of methods in his work, ranging from traditional morphological analysis of both primary and secondary data from a wide variety of languages to lexical decision experiments to dictionary-based counting. He maintains a secondary research interest in writing systems, especially how they relate to spoken language and linguistic awareness. He also has a strong commitment to promoting the teaching of linguistics at all levels and was the founding chair of the committee on language in the schools of the Linguistic Society of America. Recent research projects and publications have dealt with morphological productivity in English and its relation to theories of the mental lexicon; the lexical semantics of English affixes; suffix combinations in English and German; and the morphology of sign languages. From 1995 to 2001, he served as Editor of Language, the Journal of the Linguistic Society of America.
