Dr Jason Johnston gained his PhD in theoretical morphology in the
Department of Linguistics in 1997 and has run courses in Phonetics and
Phonology, Syntax, Morphology, Historical Linguistics and
Computational Linguistics within the Department. He has also taught
Syntax and Advanced Syntax at the University of Queensland, and
Language Structure and Meaning at the University of Newcastle's
Central Coast Campus.
Jason has also worked in theoretical and practical applications of
Linguistics, including as Phonetic Lexicographer with Sayso! (formerly
Syrinx Speech Systems), Research Fellow at the Microsoft Research
Institute, and Research Associate at the Language Acquisition Research
Centre (LARC) at the University of Sydney.
Jason's research interests centre around core issues in generative
linguistics, with a particular focus on the interaction between the
mental lexicon, syntax, phonology and the 'embedded history' of a
language in morphology, and on computational modelling of linguistic
competence and performance.
Jason is also a NSW legal practitioner.
