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 language’s rhythmic properties on the production of focus-marking pitch accents when speaking a second language.
