Dr Holly Kennard

Retained Lecturer in Linguistics

My research interests lie in morphosyntax and morphophonology, language contact and language endangerment.

I am particularly interested in Breton, but also currently work on French and Bengali, within the Language and Brain Laboratory in the Faculty of Linguistics.

More generally, I am interested in loanword adaptation, grammatical gender, and the potential for language change in situations of language obsolescence and language revival.
