Profile

I am a Professor and Director of the Center for Language Research (CLR) and the Graduate School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Aizu. I have a Ph.D in Linguistics (phonetics) from the University of British Columbia (Canada), an M.A. in Teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language from the University of Birmingham (U.K.), and a Bachelor of Mathematics from the University of Waterloo (Canada). My main research interests are speech production and L2 acquisition of pronunciation. Experimental phonetics - both articulatory and acoustic phonetics - underlies most of my work. Since 2000, I have specialized in using ultrasound as a tool to view and measure the tongue during speech. I am also interested in tracking the motion of articulators such as the lips and jaw, and I have used motion capture systems such as Optotrak and Vicon MX to do this. The CLR Phonetics Lab is where I do much of my research. In my teaching, I often make use of Moodle and Schoology, learning management systems. My specific research interests include Articulatory Settings (as seen through inter-speech rest posture) in monolinguals & bilinguals, and L1/L2 acquisition of phonology & phonetics (including using ultrasound for visual biofeedback of the tongue).

本研究はEMAを用いて発話直前及び発話中の舌の冠状面形状を英語母語話者3名と非母語話者4名に対して計測した。非母語話者は日本語母語話者3名とスペイン語母語話者1名で,英語調音習熟度が低い2名と母語話者に匹敵する高さの2名である。英語母語話者と高習熟度非母語話者では,発話開始直前の準備態勢にある舌側面形状が発話中の中央値付近に分布したものの,低習熟度非母語話者では舌幅に関して効率の低い準備態勢にあることが示された。
