LSA Summer Institute at the University of Chicago


Hello from Chicago, where I'm teaching the latter half of Sociophonetics at the 2015 LSA Summer Institute (Lauren Hall-Lew taught for the first half). Last week's classes were on the sociophonetics of speech perception - how social information affects the perception of sounds, and how variation in speech leads to perceptions of the speaker. This week: accommodation, change over the lifespan, and models of (socio)phonological variation!
