Phonemic representations in speech perception and production: Recalibration by readingacquisition

Project description

Phonemic recalibration during literacy acquisition

Does reading acquisition reshape our phonemic inventory? To show it does, the EU-funded ReadCalibration project will investigate the time course and fine-grained properties of this recalibration. It is the first systematic investigation of phonemic recalibration during literacy acquisition. The findings will provide important insight for pragmatic research and theoretical accounts of language perception and production and phonemic recalibration. The project, which will merge two research fields (reading acquisition and phonemic recalibration), will demonstrate that phonemic representations become more stable and less dispersed during the process of learning to read. Project outcomes will have major implications for the clinical field (theories and remediation of dyslexia and deafness) and for social policies and education.
