Congrats to UROP recipient Aspen Bombardo

Congratulations to Aspen Bombardo, who was awarded an Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) grant to continue working on research in the lab in Fall 2018! Below is a brief description of the project she will be working on:

  • Aspen Bombardo: “Variation in the production of English consonant clusters by Asian American bilinguals”

Aspen will be working on a sociophonetic research project examining features of English and heritage languages spoken by Asian Americans, across a range of ethnicities and life histories in the U.S. In Fall 2018, Aspen will be involved in analyzing speech recordings from a pilot corpus of interviews, with a focus on variation in the production of consonant clusters by Asian Americans who learned English as a second language.
