Researchers in the Speech Acquisition Lab explore questions about how the sound system of a second language is learned by adult learners, such as: Why do adult second language learners typically have accents? Why are some new sounds harder for adults to learn than others? What sources of information do second language learners draw on when learning a new sound system?
The Speech Acquisition Lab is delighted to welcome our newest lab members!
The Speech Acquisition Lab will be at PSLLT 2018 - Sept 8th & 9th!
