Richard Kurth Larson's research has spanned a wide range of topics in syntax and semantics, including relative and adverbial clauses, NP adverbs, disjunctions, quantifiers and quantifier scope, comparatives, prepositional phrases, double object and applicative constructions, psych verbs, pronoun interpretation, and clausal complementation. Languages of investigation include Warlpiri, Japanese, Turkish, Haitian, Russian, Mandarin, Persian, Gilaki and Zazaki.

In addition to linguistics research, Larson has worked in undergraduate science education in connection with the NSF-sponsored   Grammar as Science Project. His contributions to developing the   Syntactica  and  Semantica  software under GAS were recognized by a 1998  EduCom medal, awarded in partnership between   EDUCAUSE  and the   Linguistic Society of America. He has also received the MIT Graduate Council Teaching Award, the Stony Brook President's Award for Excellence in Teaching, the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching, and the Stony Brook Dean's Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching.    

Richard Larson is the chair of the Linguistic Society of America's newly established  AP Linguistics Committee,  which is working in partnership with the   College Board  and with students, teachers and faculty across the nation to create an AP Linguistics course and examination.
