  • PhD, Linguistics, The Ohio State University


Dr. Pappas' Ph.D. dissertation examined the placement of weak object pronouns in the popular texts of Later Medieval Greek. Dr Pappas' research interests are mainly in the areas of historical linguistics, language variation and change, but he is also interested in issues of language contact, Balkan linguistics and the teaching of Modern Greek. He is currently working on language variation in BC English, clitic placement in Cypriot Greek, the effect of frequency on lexical change in Greek, and the pronunciation of palatal laterals in Cypriot Greek.
