Speech Acquisition Lab

Researchers in the Speech Acquisition Lab explore questions about how the sound system of a second language is learned by adults, such as: How do adult learners' multiple languages influence each other? Why are some new sounds harder for adults to learn than others? What sources of information do adult language learners draw on when learning a new sound system?
