The phonetics community at Indiana University

Research in the IU phonetics community is very diverse, ranging from documentation of production mechanisms in understudied languages to perceptual modeling of indexical information to the phonological systems of second language learners. Some sample research project descriptions can be found on the web pages of the Linguistics Speech Laboratory, Second Language Psycholinguistics Laboratory, Speech Perception Laboratory, and Speech Research Laboratory. For additional information on language-related research at Indiana University, visit the Language Sciences homepage. There is also an informal phonetics reading group called PhLEGMe (Phonetics Literature Enjoyment Group Meeting).
