Prashant Pardeshi


I am interested in linguistic typology, a subfield of linguistics that studies and classifies languages according to their structural features. The goals of typological studies are to describe and explain the common properties and the structural diversity of the world’s languages. I primarily work on Japanese, Marathi and few more East Asian and South Asian languages.
