10:00 – 11:00 Sublexical Learner
Michael Becker (Stony Brook University)

This tutorial is for people who work on morphophonological alternations, either in natural languages or in artificial language experiments. We will review the Sublexical Phonology approach to mappings between surface forms, and see how to implement such analyses at sublexical.phonologist.org.  Bring your dataset, text editor, and browser.

11:00 – 12:00 Ultrasound Biofeedback
Doug Whalen (The Graduate Center, CUNY) & Tara McAllister (New York University)

This tutorial is part of the workshop “Bridging the gap between phonological theory and speech disorders.” Doug Whalen will provide an overview of current technologies and methods for ultrasound imaging for speech. Tara McAllister will discuss the use of ultrasound biofeedback to study speech learning in both typical speakers and individuals with speech disorders.

12:00 – 1:00 VoiceSauce
Jianjing Kuang (University of Pennsylvania)

In this tutorial, we will introduce how to use VoiceSauce – the state-of-the-art program for voice analysis. We will first go over the background of voice quality and introduce the voice measures in the program; and then discuss in depth how to obtain accurate values for voice analysis; and finally discuss how these voice measures apply to different phonation types across languages. If time permits, we can also briefly discuss cases beyond normal speech. Download the program here: http://www.seas.ucla.edu/spapl/voicesauce/
