Professor López's main interest is general linguistic theory with special concentrations on syntax, morphology and information structure. For the last few years he has focused on the study of code-switching and bilingual linguistic structure more generally. He also maintains a secondary interest in the connection between linguistic theory, philosophy of language and the law. Professor López has been the recipient of fellowships from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the Fulbright Commission and NWO (Dutch Research Council).
