The role of social factors in bilingual speech processing: the case of Galician New Speakers.

Dates: 2013-2021

Collaborators: Bronwen G. Evans (UCL), Robert Mayr (Cardiff Metropolitan University)

Summary: This project uses phonetic methods, perception tasks and eye-tracking to investigate Galician-Spanish bilinguals' speech production and perception, with a focus on Galician new speakers (neofalantes). Most of this work was conducted during my PhD thesis, supervised by Dr Bronwen Evans (UCL) and Prof Valerie Hazan (UCL). A related project on the role of early exposure and continued language use in bilingual speech production was conducted in collaboration with Dr Robert Mayr (Cardiff Metropolitan University), Laura López Bueno and Martín Vázquez Fernández.
