Visiting Lecture with Dr. Bryan Gick

Dr. Bryan Gick

Dr. Bryan Gick visited UGA to give a lecture on concatenation and coarticulation in embodied speech. Dr. Gick's research focuses on understanding the physical mechanisms of speech production and their interations with perception, phonology, and phonetics in normal, disordered, and children's speech across languages. His talk was co-funded by Linguistics and AI.
