About SIRL

The SIRL research project (Social Interaction in the Representation of Language) is supported by a grant by A*Midex and led by James Sneed German.

The SIRL project addresses the role of social information (e.g., gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status) in how linguistic forms are perceived, remembered, accessed and produced. This issue is explored from a variety of perspectives, including regional variation, phonetic convergence, identity construction, perceptual adaptation, emotional prosody, and phonological acquisition, with approaches drawn from sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and exemplar phonology, among others.
