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 (which is a joint lab space of the first two entities), as well as in the field (e.g. schools, hospitals), and at collaborating institutions. Our work is currently funded by Charles University and the Czech Science Foundation.
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.
