Eleanor Glewwe

Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow

Eleanor Glewwe earned her Ph.D. in Linguistics from UCLA in 2019. Her research interests lie in phonology and phonetics. She uses artificial grammar learning experiments to test whether people are biased toward learning simpler phonological patterns and phonetically natural phonological patterns. In other work, she examines how the phonetic realization of words is influenced by the amount of competition they face from other phonologically similar words in the lexicon. She has also studied the tonal adaptation of English loanwords in Mandarin and the segmental and tonal phonologies of Logoori, a Kenyan language, and Efik, a Nigerian language.

Eleanor teaches introductory linguistics, phonetics, and phonology. She has a B.A. in Linguistics and Languages (French and Chinese) from Swarthmore College. In addition to being a linguist, she writes fantasy novels for young people.
