Welcome to the UW Phonology Lab!
How to use neural networks to model human speech production and perception? What do the networks learn and how is their learning similar and different from phonological learning? What aspects of phonology result from cognitive biases and what aspects are emergent from transmission of language in space and time? These are the central questions that the UW Phonology Lab aims to answer by combining computational models of phonological learning, statistical models of sound change, and behavioral experiments.
We’re happy to announce an acquisition of a brand new EGG device for measuring vocal fold vibration.
