The UC Berkeley PhonLab (Phonetics/Phonology Lab) focuses on documenting and explaining sound patterns in language. This includes physical studies of aerodynamic and articulatory factors in speech production, behavioral and neural imaging studies of speech perception, as well as linguistic studies of synchronic and diachronic language sound patterns.
