about

Ian Rigby
I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics at the Univeristy of Southern California. Broadly, my research focuses on how psychological concepts (e.g., prototypicality, saliency, gender, etc.) impact linguistic behavior. I center my work in psycholinguistics, and am chiefly interested in semantic and pragmatic processing. However, recent work has also tackled issues at the phonology-psycholinguistics interface. Specifically, how aforementioned concepts affect combinatorial patterns in lexical blends (e.g., Brangelina).

I am also a member of the USC Language Processing Lab
