I am interested in the study of the structural and prosodic realization of information structure, and the role of information structure in language processing. I am also interested in the social aspects of language like language variation, language change, language contact, bilingualism.
Most of my current work revolves around South Asian languages like Bangla (Bengali) and Hindi.
- Syntax of focus and topic
- Syntax-Prosody interface
- Word order and scrambling in Bangla and Hindi
- Effects of discourse and prosody on word order
- Post-verbal constituents
- Processing of information structure and prosody
