Phonetics Seminar: Matthew Faytak & Bowei Shao (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle), “Fricative noise targets for vowels: a comparative acoustic study”

May 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Abstract: The so-called “fricative” and “apical” vowels, which occur throughout the Chinese languages, are known to have constriction locations more anterior than those of high front vowels, and are canonically produced with some fricative noise. However, recent descriptions have disagreed on how much fricative noise is actually involved in the production of these vowels, with studies of Standard Chinese in particular claiming that that language’s apical vowels have no associated frication. In this talk, we raise the possibility that fricative…

Phonetics Seminar: Fernando Llanos (U of Texas, Austin), “Reopening the sensitive period in adult learners of lexical tones”

April 19 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Abstract: Humans are excellent learners. Yet, a notable and well-documented exception is the acquisition of non-native speech categories by adults. Speech category learning is supported by multiple systems and, as we learn more about these systems, it is becoming possible to improve perceptual behavior in adult learners. In this talk, which reflects on my postdoctoral work with Bharath Chandrasekaran’s team, I will discuss two potential ways to ameliorate second language acquisition of lexical tones: 1) high-variability training with trial-by-trial feedback…
