In the framefork of her PhD, Stella Krüger has investgated developmenal differences in the perception of coarticulatory cues. Her findings have been accepted with revisions.
We are preparing for ISSP conferenceto be held, Dec 14-18th. We will present five studies adressing topics related to reading, carryover coarticulation, perception,and the modelling of children articulaory strategies.
In the framework of her PhD within the Marie Curie PredictAble ITN, Orsolya Kolozsvári (Jyväskylä University) has investigated the cortical tracking of various sized units of speech that are crucial for spoken language processing in children and adults. The findings have been submitted for publication and are now in the revision phase.

07.03: In the framework of a research collaboration with Prof. Lucie Ménard, Aude Noiray will give talk at UQAM (Montreal) entitled: Units of phonological awareness & units of speech production in development.
13.02: Aude Noiray will give a talk at the Humboldt University on: Anticipation in spoken language acquisition: interaction with speech motor control and phonological development.
In a study conducted last year, we used ultrasound imaging and generalised additive models (GAMs) to examine children's use of anticipation in their speech. Thanks to 74 wonderful children age 3 to 7 as well as adults, we tracked the maturation of this mechanism. The article is now released online in open access.
Congratulation to Dzhuma Abakarova who was awarded a research fellowship from the DAAD to spend two months at USC. She will work with Profs. Iskarous and Goldstein on modelling coarticulatory processes.
