The Phonetics group consists of:

Current students: Hussin Kriba; Isao Hara; Hanan Taqi; Wasan Al-Siraih, Reenu Punnoose; Aslynn Wang; Nadine Awde; Mirjana Sokolovic-Perovic; Sabina Nenkova

Meeting purpose: Phonetic transcription of various languages, children's speech, and disordered speech; reading and discussing phonetics and laboratory phonology articles; dry-runs for conference presentations; preparation for panels; showcase of student's PhD work; using PRAAT, and any other activities that might benefit students or staff who belong to the group.

Membership: Anybody with interest in phonetics and/or phonology is welcome to join the group.

Meeting dates / times: These vary a lot, especially outside term-time. This summer, for instance, we're not meeting at all because more than half of the group is away for fieldwork and other research-related activities. During term time, meetings tend to take place fortnightly on a Thursday from 12 till 1pm, but dates and times may vary so anybody thinking of joining may like to regularly check the website for updated information.

Venue: Room 2.14 KGVI when the phonetics lab or powerpoint are needed, CRiLLS space at other times. Once again, we will try to advertise venues along with dates and times online.
