Just submitted "Attitudes toward deafness affect speech-based first impressions of young adults with cochlear implants," Part 2 of my project on social effects of CI users' intelligibility and speech quality.
The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America just accepted my paper with David Pisoni titled "Speech rate, speech rate-matching, and intelligibility in cochlear implant users."
Back from two weeks in Italy (vacation in anticipation of the upcoming, all-consuming new job). Went to Rome, Florence, Venice, Tuscan wine country, and a quick stop in Pisa. A++ would move to Venice :)
I've started data collection on a new experiment that examines whether young adults converge toward the speech rate of cochlear implant users who vary in speech intelligibility and speech rate.
Submitted a revised "Speech rate, speech rate-matching, and intelligibility in cochlear implant users."
Presented my poster "Speech rate, rate-matching, and intelligibility: Evidence from cochlear implant users" at the Linguistic Society of America annual meeting in Austin TX. It's normally warm there, but not this week :(. But it wasn't too cold to visit the capitol, UT campus, and some live music on the weekend. Plus, I missed my connecting flight home, so I had an unplanned day trip to Atlanta.
