Public/Media (Non-Technical) Description
I study the sounds of language, how they are produced, how they sound, and especially how they vary between individuals and social groups. I am particularly intersted in the way the physical system of speech (and sign) constrains the possiblities of spoken (and signed) language, and how seemingly infinitely variable speech is categorized, recognized, and used by speakers for both linguistic and social tasks.
