Phonetics & Phonology Lab

at Indiana University

Kelly H. Berkson


Kelly H. Berkson is an assistant professor of linguistics at Indiana University, where she primarily teaches courses in phonetics and phonology. She earned her PhD in linguistics from the University of Kansas in 2013. Her research focuses on the acoustic, perceptual, and phonological investigation of typologically uncommon sounds and patterns. Her current work revolves around the acoustics and typology of breathy voiced sonorants. She also works in areas related to language endangerment and revitalization, and has an MA in Global Indigenous Nations Studies. Her BA is from Vassar College. She hails from New England, but—sadly—has neither the caught/cot nor the merry/marry/ Mary distinction.
