Melanie Bell's research activity page


Melanie teaches modules in the areas of phonetics, phonology and psycholinguistics and has also taught statistics at international summer schools in linguistics. She is a University Teaching Fellow and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Melanie is interested in the empirical study of language: experimental, corpus-based and computational approaches to phonetics and phonology, morphology and syntax, semantics and pragmatics. Her own research has focused on compound words in English. She is part of a thriving international research network in quantitative linguistics and is currently collaborating with researchers at the Universities of Düsseldorf and Trier on the phonetics and phonology of complex words, with researchers at the University of Tübingen on the relationship between acoustics and semantics in English compounds, and with researchers at the Universities of Jena and Cordoba on semantic transparency and adjective-noun constructions respectively.

Melanie would welcome research students wanting to work in empirical linguistics.
