Jevon is interested in why people have different linguistic behavior and different expectations about language in different circumstances. His current research focuses on the relationship between phonetic, lexical, and syntactic accommodation, and on the effects of attention on phonetic perception. Other interests include language change, language contact, and lingustic typology.
