My current research interests lie in articulatory and acoustic phonetics, non-linear phonology and Conversation Analysis. I am particularly interested in how Conversation Analytic methodology can inform and reshape our understanding of the functioning of phonetic detail and phonetic variation.
- The Sequential and Linguistic-Phonetic Design of Indirectness in Talk-in-interaction
I am currently working with Professor Paul Drew (Sociology) and Dr Traci Curl on an AHRB-funded project. We will be looking at how speakers use phonetic features and the sequential organisation of turns at talk to accomplish indirectness, and we will investigate how these phonetic and sequential features are reacted to by interlocutors.
