SPEAKIN Lab is a research group doing speech and language science. Our main interests are speech learning and adaptation, speech perception and production, and their dynamics across the lifespan, languages, language varieties, and accents. For more detail on what we do exactly, please see the projects page.
We’re scientists and students affiliated with the Institute of Psychology, Czech Academy of Sciences, the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, and the Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové. Our experiments run mostly in LABELS, a.k.a. Laboratory of Behavioural and Linguistic Studies, as well as at schools, hospitals, and at collaborating institutions.
We collaborate closely with the English department at Palacký University in Olomouc, as well as with universities and research institutes in the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Australia.
In 2018–2022 our research was supported by Charles University, in 2018–2020 and 2021–2023 some of our projects were/have been funded by the Czech Science Foundation, and some doctoral and student projects are realized with support by the Charles University Grant Agency.
