Elise Bell


I’m a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at El Paso, in the Language and Linguistics department.

I received my PhD from the Department of Linguistics at the University of Arizona.

My primary research interests are in bilingual phonetics and phonology, focusing on Celtic and Native American languages.

I’m currently working (with my advisor Dr. Mike Hammond, Skye Anderson, and others) investigating the Welsh system of initial consonant mutations.

My dissertation research investigated the distribution of vowel quality and quantity distinctions in the dialect(s) of Welsh spoken in Argentina, specifically, how the perception and production of Welsh vowels is affected by bilingualism with Spanish, rather than with English.
