Reading Group on Phonetics and Phonology

Welcome to the MIT Phonology Circle! We are a student-run reading group on phonetics and phonology. We offer an informal platform for presenters interested in these topics to:

  • Lead a discussion of a new or old paper you are curious about (you can contact us for ideas!)
  • Present work in progress (including experimental designs that you’d like to discuss)
  • Introduce phonological puzzles with or without a solution
  • Provide tutorials about particular research tools (experimental platforms, acoustic analysis software, articulatory imaging technology)
  • Give practice talks
This winter, we will be meeting on Mondays, 5pm-6:30pm in room 32-D831 (unless announced otherwise).
If you are interested in joining our mailing list, please join here.  
If you would like to present in one of the meetings, please email Boer ( or Cora (
