I am Jonny Kim, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Jung Yun Kim (or 김정윤) is also my legal name in Korea.

As a psycholinguist and a sociophonetician, my research explores cognitive processing of spoken language perception, with a focus on the influence of socio-indexical information attributed to the talker. I am also interested in language variation, social meaning of variants, phonological development, prosody, statistical learning, and corpus-based approach.
