Research Specialization Areas - Speech and Voice Production

The fluent production of speech requires a complex, coordinated interplay of breath, voice, and oral articulation. We examine the speech and voice production process, including its acoustic, articulatory, and neurophysiological correlates. Studies by faculty cover the gamut of these processes, from the articulatory details of coarticulation between speech sounds to the neurophysiological correlates of syntactic structure generation, from the breakdown of fluid phonation in clinical voice populations to the intentional enhancement of speech cues in clear speech by native and non-native English speakers.
