The Speech Perception and Production Lab at the University of Oregon asks how people perceive and produce speech, with a particular focus on non-native perception and production. We conduct laboratory phonology and psycholinguistic experiments looking at speech perception and production and acoustic-phonetic analyses of speech.
The lab is directed by Melissa Baese-Berk, PhD. Our work is currently supported by two grants from the National Science Foundation (BCS 1734166; REU supplement to BCS 1500714).
You can learn more about who we are and what we do by exploring the different sections of this site. If you are a University of Oregon undergraduate who is interested in language and looking for research experience, make sure to check out the volunteer opportunities in the Get Involved section. If you are a non-native English speaker willing to help us by serving as a paid study participant, please check out ways to participate in experiments in the Get Involved section.
