Linguistics: phonetics, phonology, speech perception, speech production

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).
