Linguistics Lab

The following experimental research approaches are available in our lab:

  • Speech production
  • Speech perception

The lab comproses six work station with computers and headphones, which are used for perception and corpus studies. Additional work stations are used for production experiments (in combination with a sound-attenuated booth).

The lab is also used for teaching, which allows students to gain insights on methods in experimental linguistic research.
