Dr. Ball regularly teaches the Advanced Linguistics courses (Phonetics/Phonology; Morphology; Syntax) and has also taught courses on Native North American languages and Polynesian languages (among other Linguistics courses). His research interests lie at the intersection of morphology, syntax, and lexical semantics, especially with regard to underdescribed languages, including those found in Polynesia and North America.
