Web Page: Dr Bert Vaux 

Bert Vaux is primarily interested in phenomena that shed light on the structure and origins of the phonological component of the grammar, especially in the realms of psychophonology (language games, speech errors, acquisition of first, second, and toy languages, development of writing systems), historical linguistics (sound change, reconstruction, evolution of language, Indo-European, Altaic, and Northwest Caucasian languages), and sociolinguistics (dialectology, microvariation, and nanovariation). He also enjoys working with native speakers to document endangered languages, especially dialects of Armenian, Abkhaz, and English.
