LSA 302: Articulatory phonetics

Dr. Wilson is an Associate Professor in the Center for Language Research and the Graduate School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Aizu (Japan). His main research interests are speech production and L2 acquisition of pronunciation. Since 2000, he has specialized in using ultrasound as a tool to view and measure the tongue during speech. His research also involves tracking the motion of articulators, such as the lips and jaw, using motion capture systems such as Optotrak and Vicon MX. Specifically, he is interested in Articulatory Settings (as seen through inter-speech rest posture) in monolinguals & bilinguals, and the use of ultrasound and acoustic software for visual biofeedback in pronunciation teaching.
