The Speech, Lexicon and Modelling (SLaM) lab
SLaM is dedicated to advancing applied and theoretical research involving spoken speech and grammar (phonetics and phonology) and word knowledge (lexicon) with experimental and computational methods.
It is co-directored by Dr. Kevin Tang, Dr. Ratree Wayland and Dr. Caroline Wilshire at UF Linguistics. It provides research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. We welcome curious and motivated UF students from a wide range of disciplines (from Engineering to Digital Humanties) to join us. SLaM collaborates closely with other research groups on campus and runs a biweekly reading group.
