Lydia Felice

I am a lecturer in linguistics at the University of Oklahoma. I received my PhD in theoretical linguistics from Georgetown University in 2022.

My research focuses on morphology and its interfaces with syntax and phonology. I primarily work on Icelandic (Germanic, Iceland), Gã (Kwa, Ghana) and Kabyle (Amazigh, Algeria). I am particularly interested in the theoretical machinery necessary to generate mismatches between syntactic terminals and phonological form, including portmanteaux. I am also curious about the role of the syntactic phase in the morphological and phonological components of the derivation.

I received my MS in Theoretical Linguistics from Georgetown University in 2019, and graduated from McGill University with a BA Honours in Linguistics and minors in Arabic and Islamic Studies.
