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.


English teacher, student of Japanese, and aspiring linguist.
