Phonetics Laboratory

 

The Phonetics Laboratory holds two regular activities: Phonetics and Phonology Seminar and Tone and Intonation Reading Group.

Phonetics and Phonology Seminar

The P&P Seminar is held weekly at the Phonetics Laboratory. Speakers present their own work followed by discussions and questions. This is a great opportunity to get some constructive feedback on a presentation before taking it to a conference, and equally to keep up to speed with exciting new research in the fields of phonetics and phonology.

Due to COVID-19, we are currently holding virtual seminars by way of Zoom on Tuesdays at 11:00.

The current programme is as follows:

Tone and Intonation Reading Group

The Tone and Intonation Reading Group is organised by PhD students, aiming to provide an informal environment for people sharing similar research interests to exchange ideas and thoughts. We meet weekly for an hour to discuss a journal article or book chapter related to any aspect of tone and intonation.

Students and staff who are interested can join the mailing list here, or alternatively email Katrina to be added to the mailing list.
