Welcome to the Indiana University Phonetics Lab web portal!
On this site, you will find resources to help you understand aspects of phonetics and conduct phonetic research. The resources are ones which we have either developed here or have found to be useful. Specifically, these resources consist of the following:
- Education: How to learn more about phonetics via classes, books, articles, or conferences
- Links: Documents and websites useful for learning more about phonetics
- Acoustics: Software for conducting acoustic analyses of speech recordings
- Experiments: Software for designing and running perception/production experiments
- Statistics: Ways to learn more about statistics and data analysis at Indiana University
- Resources: Related facilities, faculty, labs, departments, and programs around the IU campus
The phonetics community at Indiana University
Research in the IU phonetics community is very diverse, ranging from documentation of production mechanisms in understudied languages to perceptual modeling of indexical information to the phonological systems of second language learners. Some sample research project descriptions can be found on the web pages of the Linguistics Speech Laboratory, Second Language Psycholinguistics Laboratory, Speech Perception Laboratory, and Speech Research Laboratory. For additional information on language-related research at Indiana University, visit the Language Sciences homepage. There is also an informal phonetics reading group called PhLEGMe (Phonetics Literature Enjoyment Group Meeting).
