Caleb Belth

Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Linguistics Department at the University of Utah. I recently defended my PhD dissertation at the University of Michigan. My research falls primarily in language acquisition, computational linguistics, and theoretical phonology, though my interests are much broader. My main research goal is to make concrete theoretical proposals about language acquisition, in particular the acquisition of phonology and morphology, and to work out their implications for linguistic theory. I use computational, experimental, and corpus-based approaches. You can read more about my research here. I am also interested the history and philosophy of science, especially linguistics and biology.

For my research, I have been awarded an NSF GRF, an NDSEG fellowship, and a Richard F. and Eleanor A. Towner Prize for Distinguished Academic Achievement.
