Phonetics Lunch Meeting


Each week during term time - irregularly also outside terms - we have a group meeting on Wednesdays from 12:15 to 13:45. Currently, this takes place in a hybrid format - in person in AND 2.23, and online via Zoom (Join). During this meeting, we discuss the latest news relevant for our lab and our research. This is followed by a short presentation by one of the group members on a topic of his/her choice. Such a presentation can be the discussion of an interesting paper or the demonstration of own research results. Sometimes we also invite guest speakers.

Everybody who is interested in our phonetics group is welcome!
