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.
