Paper - Evolution of Leading Ideas and Theoretical Questions in Phonetics and Phonology

This document is an expanded version of and an accompaniment to our video conversation as part of the Indo-Phon Webinar Series. Its purpose is to share with linguistics students and faculty our (Tara and Mohanan's) personal understanding of theoretical linguistics, and of the nature of inquiry and research and the leading ideas and theoretical questions in linguistics. It is grounded in several decades of teaching and research in phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics, with excursions into applied linguistics and instrumental phonetics, followed by our pursuit of the comparative epistemology of academic knowledge and inquiry – covering mathematics, the physical-biological-human sciences, philosophy, literary studies, and that part of human history that comes under the humanities.
