Welcome to the Phonetics group and laboratory

Phonetics deals with the production and perception of speech sounds. Formerly a classical subdomain of linguistics, it nowadays interacts with other disciplines such as speech technology or psychology.

Our group carries out basic research on different aspects of phonetics and speech sciences, in particular in the field of forensic phonetics.

We offer courses in phonetics for several study programs at UZH and maintain a dedicated library.
