Profil et Recherches

My research combines theory construction for linguistic phenomena with experimental explorations of speech production in different languages and populations. It lies in the area of Laboratory Phonology with the goal to understand variation in speech and how it relates to phonological organization. To achieve this goal, I consider different factors of variation, such as linguistically-related (prosodic constituents), disease-related (speech motor disorders) and biologically-related (aging) factors. My line of research is at the core of how to model coordinative structures in a non-linear dynamic system, aiming to represent not only continuous but also discrete phenomena in speech and, going a step further, to understand variation as part of the phonological system, providing a window into linguistic structure.

Mes recherches combinent la construction théorique de phénomènes linguistiques avec des explorations expérimentales de la production de la parole dans différentes langues et populations. Elles se situent dans le domaine de la Phonologie de Laboratoire dans le but de comprendre la variation de la parole et comment elle se rapporte à l’organisation phonologique. Pour atteindre cet objectif, je considère différents facteurs de variation, tels que les facteurs liés au langage (constituants prosodiques), aux maladies (troubles de la parole et de la motricité) et aux facteurs biologiques (vieillissement). Ma ligne de recherche est au cœur de la modélisation des structures de coordination dans un système dynamique non linéaire, visant à représenter non seulement des phénomènes continus mais aussi des phénomènes discrets dans la parole et, allant plus loin, à comprendre la variation comme faisant partie du système phonologique, fournissant ainsi une fenêtre sur la structure linguistique.
