Linguistics: phonetics, laboratory phonology, speech perception, speech production, bi-(or multi-)lingualism
My research revolves around the nature of the cognitive representations of human speech sounds and the relationship of these representations to their physical aspects. Given this focus, I use empirical data to study the consequences of speaker-listeners’ linguistic experiences for their phonological (cognitive) knowledge, and their perception and production of speech. My research has included investigating the effects of linguistic experience both on a macro level (e.g., learning a—first or additional—language) and on a micro level (e.g., exposure to speech stimuli in a lab for two minutes).
