Overview

Zec's research focuses on phonological theory, a study of the principles that govern the patterning of sound in individual languages, as well as cross-linguistically. She has worked in several areas of phonology and its interfaces: on the moraic theory of syllable structure, the representation of pitch accent, and both the phonology-morphology and the phonology-syntax interfaces.
