Projects in the Speech Analysis Lab at GMU investigate speech perception and production with quantitative and experimental methods.
In this collaboration with Melissa Baese-Berk at the University of Oregon, we are examining factors affecting non-native speech perception and production. We are particularly interested in whether inconsistency in variables such as speaking rate contributes to foreign-accented speech.
Prosody PerceptionThis project includes collaborations with Laura Dilley and the MSU Speech Perception-Production Lab, and Devin McAuley and the Timing, Attention and Perception (TAP) Lab at Michigan State. We have investigated context prosody and speaking rate information and its effects on word segmentation and lexical perception.
