Dynamic Dialects: looking at the hidden movements of the tongue and other vocal organs

Prof Jane Stuart-Smith

Sir Ian Wood Building, Robert Gordon University, Garthdee Campus

Introducing two new online resources for learning about speech and accent variation www.dynamicdialects.ac.uk and www.seeingspeech.ac.uk. We use ultrasound and MRI imaging technology to show the movements of the hidden vocal organs during speech and compare how speakers with different accents produce different sounds. See the hidden movements of your own tongue when you speak with our ultrasound tongue imaging demonstration.
