Ivan Paul M. Bondoc received his PhD in Linguistics from the University of Hawai'i at M noa. The primary core of his research investigates the nature of grammatical properties and phenomena (with a special interest in morphologically-rich languages such as Tagalog and other Philippine-type languages), and the real-time mechanisms involved in sentence comprehension and production. He maintains an active interest in how the grammatical features from these languages are acquired by first language learners, and are lost due to cognitive decline or acquired language disorders.
