LING342 Laboratory Phonology

Speaking turns ideas into sound. Examination of what sounds are in human language, how they pattern, and how to discover them. Covers both theory and experimental testing.

In previous papers, you will have learned how to discover sound patterns in languages based around articulatory principles. In this paper, you will extend your understanding to include acoustic phonetics, speech perception, and speech production. The paper combines theory with hands-on research into speech.
