PaPE 2021

I am currently attending the Phonetics and Phonology in Europe conference where I presented a paper on lenition in the Spanish of Gran Canaria prepared jointly with Marzena Żygis, Adam Sikorski and Jan Wołłejko. The research was founded by the National Science Foundation (see Research tab > Sonata project) and will be published in open access in the next volume of Phonology.

The presentation, entitled "Gradient effects and contrast preservation in Spanish lenition", is available here.

Also, my student Jan Wołłejko is presenting his research at one of the PaPE poster sessions. The title is "Perception of word-final aspirated /s/ - a cross-dialectal and cross-linguistic study". See the presentation here.
