The role of linguistic rhythm in second language production


UCSB Office of Research, 2021-2022

PI: Argyro Katsika

Due to constraints imposed by Covid-19, the required kinematic data for this project could not be acquired, and the project could not be completed as proposed. As a result its focus was adjusted in order to acquire acoustic data: a set of acoustic experiments assess the effects of native languageā€™s rhythmic properties on the production of focus-marking pitch accents when speaking a second language.
