Facilities

Child Language and Phonology Laboratory

The Child Language Laboratory is devoted to the study of language development and intervention.  The lab has four Pentium computers, transcription machines, a laser printer, audiovisual recording equipment, and plenty of toys and books.  Data collected from schools, homes, and the recording studio are transcribed and analyzed using various computer-assisted language analyses programs.

Speech Science Laboratory

The Speech Science Laboratory (SSL) consists of several state-of-the-art workstations that are equipped for multi-channel acquisition and analysis of acoustic, aerodynamic, and electroglottographic (EGG) signals.  Research activities in the SSL include studies of laryngeal and velopharyngeal function, vocal fold behavior of tone production, acoustical analysis of English produced by non-native English speakers, and the production and perception of normal and disordered nasalization.

Equipment in the SSL includes a two-channel CSL 4100, four-channel CSL 4300B, laryngograph, Rothenberg aerodynamic system, inverse filter, DATAQ data acquisition/analysis hardware and software, accelerometry, an acoustic rhinometer, and digital stroboscopy.

The SSL supports student and faculty research activity, and provides an excellent opportunity for student education through demonstration and individual lab exercises.  Some graduate assistantships are regularly associated with ongoing research in the SSL based upon the interest and goals of student applicants.

Sign Language Lab

The Sign Language Laboratory is used by students enrolled in our Sign Language classes. Students practice their signing and reading skills with other students and teaching assistants. The lab houses ten computers with CD/DVD that allows students to watch tapes concerning deaf culture. The lab also features a large, round seminar table that is used for sign language instruction.
