The Yale Phonetics Lab is a center for the study of human speech at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. The laboratory has equipment for tracking speech articulation in real time, including electromagnetic articulography and ultrasound, and supports research projects by Yale faculty, as well as graduate students, undergraduate students and visiting researchers. Research in the lab aims to elucidate cognitive processes involved in speech production and perception, with implications for characterizing phonological representations, explaining local variation in speech patterns (across individuals, groups, languages, and situations) and explaining change within a community over longer time scales. The lab takes an integrative approach, characterized by experimental, theoretical, and computational components linked so that they elucidate each other.
