Strycharczuk in Munich

Pat braved the elements on Snowmaggedon Wednesday to visit the Institute of Phonetics and Speech Processing in Munich, where she delivered a talk on ‘Variation and change in the articulation of English /l/’. Her talk summed up the results of two articulatory projects on /l/ in Southern British English and in New Zealand English, focusing on the mechanism by which vocalised variants of /l/ come about (think milk being pronounced as ‘miwk’).
