C/D model website, and my MA defense

Two quick pieces of news:

Yesterday I started a site with Donna Erickson and Shigeto Kawahara to promote the C/D model. If you’re not familiar, the C/D model is short for “converter/distributor model”. It’s a way of describing how phonology and phonetics interact, how the system of sounds in our heads gets translated into physical sounds.

Second, I passed my MA defense! I still need to hand in a revised version of my thesis, but this means I’ll be graduating at the end of March. If all goes according to plan, I’ll be going into a doctoral program at the same university the week after that, so I’ll still be doing basically the same kind of research I’m doing now.
