Experimental Linguistics Research Group
The Linguistics Department at Queen Mary has state-of-the-art facilities for experimental research in linguistics.
We currently offer the following main research facilities, which are equipped with associated high-end recording equipment.
- Ultrasound imaging
- EEG (full faraday cage)
- Sound-proof recording studios
These main facilities are housed in the following labs.
The Phonetics Lab: The QMUL Phonetics Lab facilitates cutting edge research on speech production and perception, involving a diverse and interdisciplinary team of academics, researchers and students.
The Language Acquisition Lab: In the QMUL Language Acquisition Lab we explore language development across the lifespan, from infancy to early adulthood, using a combination of behavioural and neurological (EEG) measures.
The facilities are available to trained postgraduate students and staff in the Department, as well as to visitors conducting related research. A facility fee for external users may be charged for funded research projects. Please contact the relevant lab directors if you are interested in using the lab facilities, and we'll be happy to be in touch.
