Workshop will focus on allowing EFL students to develop a use for these models in the context of their own research, specifically in the experimental design and perception stimuli preparation (e.g. PSOLA resynthesis). We will first observe and try to replicate American English contours in specific contexts, but with a view on French and other languages spoken by the students. Then we will create PSOLA resynthesized stimuli that could be the base of a perception experiment. Outside of the seminar, I will spend some time with each student to help them to find an insightful way to apply these techniques to their own research.
