This is the webpage of Sounds of Language and Speech research group (informally but consistently known as “Phon-Phon for Phun“). For an explanation by Míša of what and who we are, check out this blog post.

Our research group presents a forum that brings together students and faculty members who share interests in the sounds of language(s) and speech. As such, we are interested in phonetics and phonology and their interfaces, which we approach empirically. This focus reflects our research interests, which include phonetic theory, phonological theory, the phonetics-phonology interface, sociophonetics, articulatory phonetics, acoustic phonetics, speech perception, language acquisition and bilingualism, foreign-accented speech, typology, the phonetics and prosody of naturally occurring interaction, forensic phonetics, and others.

We meet approximately every fortnight during the semester (and sometimes outside of it as well) to discuss these matters and eat cake.

If you have any questions, or if you want to try out our informative (and cake-fuelled) meetings, please email anna.jespersen |at| cc.au.dk or misa.hejna |at| cc.au.dk and you’ll be added to our mailing list 🙂
