Marisa Brook's research is centered around language variation and change, especially on the morphosyntactic and discourse-pragmatic levels. She is primarily interested in processes and outcomes of change over time (layering and recycling, grammaticalization, mergers, etc.). Topics she has worked on lately include overlapping/interdependent variables, mechanisms of generational change, and subordinate clause markers of all sorts.
