Abstract

Research in our laboratory is situated at the interface of sociolinguistics and phonetics. Acoustic phonetic techniques are used to analyze regional, social and stylistic variation in the varieties of Acadian French spoken in New Brunswick. Studies analyze segmental features such as the consonant /r/ and the affrication of /t, d/; the study of prosodic features includes the application of rhythm metrics to prosodic units such as the accentual phrase.
