Research at ALPS focuses on the variation of language sounds: their internal articulatory and acoustic characteristics, their distributional properties and how they are used to convey social information. Research in the lab covers a range of themes and methods in speech production and perception: social networks and sound variation, bilingual speech, articulation and perception of rhotics, consonant clusters, quantitative modelling of ultrasound tongue imaging data, laryngeal contrasts.
