Rhonda Chung

PhD Candidate
Concordia University

I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Education (Applied Linguistics) program at Concordia University where I am training to become an applied critical sociophonologist.

I am interested in the sound of voices, specifically the act of listening: Are learners ‘hearing’ the whole picture of a language? Or is the classroom privileging certain voices over others? What is the cumulative effect on learners' perceptions of the target language?

My specific research interests are:

  • Sociophonological aspects of dialect perception in additional language learning

  • Categorical perception and development of phonemes (segmental learning)

  • Language pedagogies based in plurilingual and multi-modal methodologies

  • High variability perceptual training methodologies; Educational gamification practices.

  • Decolonial principles, which include presenting the natural dialectal variation inherent in a given language and giving voice to the speech communities who speak it.  |
