Description:

Students admitted to the Ph.D. program in linguistics will be considered for
Research Assistantships on an NSF-funded project investigating the relationship
between the production and perception of foreign languages.

This project uses the methodology of linguistics, psychology, and
neurophysiology to determine why some foreign language structures are mastered
more easily than others. The goals are to determine whether language learners'
problems in pronunciation originate from errors of perception, and at what level
of processing the perception errors occur. Two types of methodology are
employed: discrimination tasks, in which listeners judge two stimuli as the same
or different; and ERP (event related potentials), which measure automatic
responses of the auditory system to changes in auditory stimuli. Experience with
ERP is welcome but not necessary.
