Lee S. Bickmore
Linguistic anthropologist and phonologist whose research focuses on linguistic prosody, including tonal, accentual, and metrical phonomena. A special concern is the interaction of several of these phenomena in the same language (i.e. when a single language resists classification as purely tonal or purely metrical stress). Area focus is mainly Bantu languages of Tanzania, Kenya, and Zambia with a secondary interest in Polynesian languages (particularly Tahitian). Data collected by field research for the most part, rather than from secondary sources.
Interests: Linguistics, phonology, tone, stress, historical linguistics
Areas: Africa, Polynesia.
