Noah Elkins


I'm a 4th year Ph.D. student and teaching fellow in Linguistics at UCLA. Welcome to my website!

I am a phonologist who's primarily interested in its interfaces with phonetics and morphosyntax. Currently, my work focuses on clause structure and prosodic phrasing in Mam, a Mamean-branch Mayan language spoken in Guatemala (Todos Santos dialect).
