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 spring, we will be meeting on Wednesdays, 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 (boerfu@mit.edu) or Chris (cminwoo@mit.edu).
