Jonathan North Washington "The role of tongue position in the production of vowels in Central Eurasian languages" Graduate Student Brown Bag Talk

Wed, Apr 9, 12:00 pm
Ballantine Hall 004

Jonathan North Washington, a Ph.D. Candidate in the Departments of Central Eurasian Studies and Linguistics, will be giving a talk entitled “The role of tongue position in the production of vowels in Central Eurasian languages” on Wednesday, April 9th at noon in Ballantine Hall 004.

"This talk explores various issues surrounding the study of tongue position in the production of vowels in Turkic, Mongolic, and Tungusic languages.  These phenomena are interesting for a variety of phonetic, phonological, typological, and even geographic and historical reasons, and the current state of knowledge leaves many questions open.  My main questions and the methods being developed to approach them will be addressed."

This is a talk in the new Graduate Student Brown Bag Talks, designed to allow students to share their research, work, experiences and goals with their peers.
