Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Explore the social, interactional, perceptual, and phonological importance of phonetic detail, why sounds of language change over time and why we have different accents. Investigate how we learn the phonologies of our first and second languages. 

Learn about a broad range of topics within the field, and be equipped to develop your own original research. 

Taught by a diverse group of researchers, you'll gain practical training in essential skills for phoneticians and phonologists, as well as a firm grounding in theory. We are recognised experts in our field, with specialisms in a wide range of areas including sociophonetics, language change, acquisition, prosody, articulation, corpus phonetics, and spoken interaction.
