Jackson L. Lee

I am a graduate student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago. I have been focusing on morphology and phonology. Approaching my covert interest in language acquisition, my more recent work is computationally inclined, focusing mostly on projects pertaining to the formal properties and unsupervised learning of morphological paradigms. Please see the dissertation page.

At a more general level, my work is geared towards shedding light on the following questions:

  1. What formal properties does language bear?
  2. What amounts to a linguistic analysis?
  3. What does it mean for an analysis to be the best for some given data?
  4. What and how much do we assume when coming up with an analysis, and why (not)?

I am the coordinator of the Workshop on Language, Cognition, and Computation.
