Language Identity and Perception (LIP) Reading Group is a Phonetics reading & discussion group, primarily focusing on issues surrounding speech perception and talker identity in various populations, languages and varieties. We gather roughly semi-weekly to discuss experimental papers or to hear from students and faculty about their ongoing research. LIP Reading Group is an interdepartmental group, including faculty and students from the Linguistics Department and Languages and Applied Linguistics Department at UCSC.

Upcoming Meetings

Spring 2018 meeting time is Friday, 10:30-11:30 am at the LCR (Linguistics Common Room, Stevenson 249).
Our next meeting will be on June 8. Grant and Maho will present on their ongoing project.
