Márton Sóskuthy’s main research interests lie at the intersection of sound change, phonetics and phonology. His research focuses on explanations of sound change based on complex interactions among multiple factors such as natural phonetic tendencies, frequency effects and lexical contrast maintenance. These questions are approached using a combination of computational and quantitative methods.
