The Berkeley Phonetics & Phonology Forum ("Phorum") is a weekly talk and discussion series featuring presentations on all aspects of phonology and phonetics.
We invite you to come with a phonetic or phonological topic or some interesting data that you are prepared to discuss for 5-10 minutes. If you do not have a topic to present, come prepared to ask questions and discuss the data that others bring!

Recent studies have identified significant individual variation in coarticulation in speech. The nature of such inter-speaker variation remains unclear, however. In particular, is interspeaker variation in producing coarticulated speech stable over time? And how are inter-speaker variations in production related to the speaker's perception of coarticulated speech? This talk presents results from two recent studies which were designed to address these questions.
