Earlier this week some of us went to McGill’s gorgeous Gault nature reserve for a language labs lab meeting (lalala).
Students from Meghan Clayards‘s Speech Learning Lab, Florian Jaeger‘s HLP lab, Chigusa Kurumada‘s Kinder Lab, Morgan Sonderegger‘s Montreal Language Modeling Lab, and Michael Wagner‘s prosody.lab presented on current projects.
- Esteban Buz: Contextual confusability, feedback and their effects on speech production
- Guilherme Garcia: Stress and gradient weight in Portuguese
- Dan Goodhue: It’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it: Intonation, yes, and no
- Oriana Kilbourn-Ceron: Phrasing and phonological variability
- Linda Liu: Learning under causal uncertainty in speech perception
- Amanda Pogue: Exploring expectations based on speaker-specific variation in informativity
- Zach Burchill: Are accents hard to learn?
- Guilherme Garcia: Second language acquisition of English stress by Québec French speakers
- Sarah Colby: Effects of normal aging on perceptual flexibility for speech
- Dan Goodhue: Towards a probabilistic explanation of contextual evidence
- Dave Kleinschmidt: Learning to adapt
- Maryam Seifeldin: Adaptation to and generalization of unfamiliar phonetic features
LaLaLa was co-sponsored by funds to the PIs of all participating labs
