Pritha Chandra is a theoretical linguist. Working within the Chomskyan paradigm, she examines the cognitive/mental computations and constraints that dictate the generation of human language sentences/strings. More recently, she is invested in the mechanisms underlying variation among mutually intelligible languages and dialects.
