The Indiana University Phonetics Lab recently launched its new website:

The site contains extensive information for anyone whose research involves speech perception experiments or the quantitative analysis of speech acoustics. Whether you are a faculty whose classes touch on these topics or are a student taking such classes, we encourage you to take advantage of this resource.

An abbreviated site map is included at the bottom of this message, listing all of the resources not specifically tied to Indiana University. Note that each section of each page has a unique URL, so you can bookmark directly to the specific parts that you find most useful.

Please feel free to spread the word about the website by forwarding this message to fellow students/faculty, listservs, labs, reading groups, and colleagues at other universities.
