Adam and Andy at University of Oregon

Linguistics faculty members Adam Ussishkin and Andy Wedel visited the Department of Linguistics at the University of Oregon April 14-17. In a back-to-back double feature, each of them gave an hour-long colloquium presentation on April 15. Adam spoke about his recent work teasing apart the effects of consonant overlap from those of morphological structure in Maltese lexical access, and Andy gave a talk on contrastive hyperarticulation in natural speech. In addition, Adam gave a two-hour workshop on April 16, focusing on auditory word recognition and how to explore it using the auditory masked priming methodology.
