LIN327H5 • Speech Perception

Description

For human listeners, understanding speech seems automatic and effortless, even when confronted with diverse talkers and many different communicative contexts. However, the underlying processes by which we perform this task are not well understood. This course covers the fundamentals of speech perception, discussing how it is shaped by a combination of linguistic, auditory, and cognitive influences. Through laboratory exercises, students will replicate classic experimental findings and gain hands-on experience with data analysis.
