Department of Linguistics and Institute for Chinese Studies Lecture: "In Search for a Perception-Production Link from an Individual Difference Perspective: Two Case Studies"

 

Friday, November 02, 2018, 3:55PM - 5:15PM

     

The Department of Linguistics, with support from the Institute for Chinese Studies, will present a lecture by Alan Yu, Department of Linguistics, University of Chicago, on Friday, November 2 from 3:55 - 5:15 p.m. at 103 Oxley Hall (1712 Neil Ave.). Professor Yu will present, "In Search for a Perception-Production Link from an Individual Difference Perspective: Two Case Studies."
 
Abstract: Recent studies have highlighted tremendously individual variability in speech perception and production alike. While some studies found a positive correlation between individual perception and production behaviors, others either failed to observe a relationship or found inconsistencies across tasks. In this talk, I report two case studies (sibilant-vowel coarticulation among speakers of American English and tone perception and production among Chinese and South Asian speakers of Hong Kong Cantonese), illustrating the nuance nature of the perception-production link and discussing how individual variation might be modeled within current theories of speech perception and production.
