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. Resources consist of:
- Phonetics education: Educational documents and websites useful for learning more about phonetics
- Acoustics software: Helpful tools for working with acoustic signals
- Experiment software: Helpful tools for conducting perception experiments
- Statistics software: Helpful tools for statistics and data analysis
- Campus resources: Facilities and resources around the Indiana University 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).
