The study of phonetics, phonology and morphology at Berkeley is rich and integrative. The well-equipped PhonLab features phonetics research in speech perception and speech production, including the use of ultrasound technology to study articulation. Berkeley has a long history of integrating phonetics research with theories of sound change and phonological typology. Research in phonology at Berkeley focuses on cross-linguistic typology, on formal theoretical models of phonology, and on the interface between phonology and phonetics and between phonology and morphology. Research in phonetics, phonology and morphology at Berkeley is closely entwined with fieldwork and language documentation. The Berkeley program offers regular undergraduate and graduate courses in all of these areas.
