fundamental research on the role of fine phonetic variation in sound change
by: helping to develop a real-time corpus of Glaswegian vernacular speech;
adapting an existing discourse analytical technique for the Glasgow corpus
for data comparison; contributing to the development of appropriate acoustic
measures for analysing coda /r/ and /l/; providing and comparing quantitative
real- and apparent-time accounts of variation and change in Glaswegian over
the past 40 years on the basis of continuous acoustic phonetic measures for
both vowels and consonants. The project also aims to contribute more
generally to theories of cognitive representations of speech over time.
