New Paper on Phonetic Variation over Time

Posted on


Max Bane (UChicago, LING), Morgan Sonderegger (UChicago, CS) and I just finished a proceedings paper about our work on phonetic variation. We tracked the VOT distributions of 4 contestants in the reality TV show Big Brother (Season 9, UK) over 3 months and obtained preliminary results showing that social perturbations can potentially explain non-linearities in phonetic parameters over time. Below is a link to our paper. We would be extremely grateful for feedback.
