One central goal in the laboratory phonology (labphon) research community is to understand variation in the sound structure of language. A focus of labphon that sets it apart from other work on variation is the emphasis on understanding how knowledge of variation might be represented cognitively. A growing consensus among labphon researchers is that at least some aspects of acoustic and articulatory variation are represented cognitively, rather than being derived by universal principals… CONTINUE READING
