My doctoral work concerns computational modeling of L2 vowel perception. More specifically, I use Paola’s Second Language Linguistic Perception (L2LP) model to examine Japanese speakers’ perception of American English vowels and Australian English speakers’ perception of Japanese vowels.
I am also involved in the development of the J-AESOP corpus, an L2 English speech corpus of Japanese speakers.
