Dr. Miguel Llompart Garcia
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair of Language and Cognition of the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, where I am currently conducting research that examines the relationship between implicit and explicit language learning abilities and linguistic knowledge in monolingual and bilingual speakers.
I am a phonetician by training and my research lies at the crossroads between phonetics, psycholinguistics and second language acquisition. Some specific topics that I have covered in my recent work are the following:
- Contrast effects in speech perception
- Decomposition of low-level acoustic patterns into linguistic units
- Processing and representation of regular dialectal variation
- Perception and production of second language sound contrasts
- Lexical encoding of second language sound contrasts
- Word learning and word recognition in a second language
