The Speech, Phonetics, and Phonology lab at the University of Delaware is a multi-researcher group spanning a wide variety of research topics and methods. Broadly, we are interested in how abstract linguistic plans relate to the act of speaking. Topics span phonological primitives and processes, category learning, prosody in perception and production, and speech sensorimotor control & its neural basis.
We use a wide variety of methods in the lab. These include behavioral production and perception studies with healthy participants and patient populations, artificial language learning paradigms, computational work, and speech production modeling.
