My latest paper on the bag-beg-vague merger in the Pacific Northwest has been accepted to the Journal of Phonetics! The title explains: Production and perception of prevelar merger: Two-dimensional comparisons using Pillai scores and confusion matrices. I've been considering ways to compare the two types of data for a long time, so I'm very pleased with this one. Special thanks to Santiago Barreda for the direction on confusion matrices (and bootstrapping confidence intervals on stats that don't normally provide things like p-values).
