research overview

  • Dr. Haynie's research focuses on patterns of linguistic diversity, the historical processes that shape diversity within language families and across geographic regions, and the interplay of cognitive, linguistic, cultural, and biogeographic factors that impact language evolution and linguistic diversity. This work has been carried out with both a regional focus on linguistic history and diversity in North America and an interest in global patterns of morphosyntactic diversity and language geography.
