Megan M Sutton



  1. -I am a 4th year Ph.D. student in the University of Maryland Department of Linguistics. My advisor is Jeffrey Lidz.

  2. -I completed my B.A. in Linguistics at Michigan State University under the direction of Alan Munn and Cristina Schmitt.

  3. -My research interests are in language acquisition and psycholinguistics.

  4. -I work in the Project on Children’s Language Learning lab.

  5. -I am an active member in the Language Science community at Maryland, and the interdisciplinary graduate training program titled “Biological and Computational Foundations of Language Diversity”, which is supported by the National Science Foundation’s Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT) program.


  1. -I am a Michigander, born and bred. I do play euchre, have Northern Cities Shifted vowels, and point to my hand to say where I’m from; I don’t play any winter sports, like changes in elevation, or approve of weather under about 55 degrees.

  2. -When not working, I enjoy camping, crafting (sew/knit/crochet/misc.), cooking, and talking to my cat.

  3. -Megan Sutton is a surprisingly popular name within the field of language research. If you are looking for this TESOL graduate (a fellow Spartan!) who teaches English in Cameroon, or this speech pathologist who develops apps for aphasic patients, you’re in the wrong place.
