Experimental Phonetics and Phonology

Experimental Phonetics and Phonology


Convenors: Professor Francis Nolan or Dr Brechtje Post

This research seminar is held in the Phonetics Laboratory, and combines discussion of selected topics in phonetics, phonology, and their intersection; the sessions usually provide hands-on experience analysing speech samples. Topics covered have included the phonetics of stress and tone, speech rhythm, the phonology and phonetics of intonation, the analysis of chosen segmental types (e.g. rhotics, stops), phonological acquisition, and speaker-characterisation. There is sometimes scope to tailor the topics covered to the research interests of students in the seminar. Seminars are usually led by Francis Nolan or Brechtje Post.
