担当教員のプロフィール About the Instructor 


Alexander Kilpatrick is an assistant professor at the Nagoya University of Business and Commerce. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Melbourne. Alexander's main area of research involves examining the influence of transitional probability on non-native speech perception. More specifically, it focuses on the chance of sounds co-occurring in a language and makes predictions as to how listeners will misperceive non-native speech based on that chance.

He is available to meet with students on Wednesdays 11:20 - 12:50 in room 6306.

His areas of interest include Speech perception, Iconicity, Psycholinguistics, Neurolinguistics, Transitional Probability, Phonetics, and Phonology.
