The Phonetics Laboratory of the Department of Linguistics and Translation at the City University of Hong Kong was established in 1995. The phonetics lab serves both teaching and research needs for undergraduate and postgraduate (M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D.) programs of the department as well as research projects of the teaching staff. The lab's main research interests include phonetics and typology of the sounds of Chinese dialects, phonetic explanations for sound changes in Chinese, and phonetics in second language acquisition. The lab has received a number of research grants from the Research Grants Council of the Hong Kong Government in support of research projects.
The Phonetics Laboratory has a collection of basic research tools, namely EMMA AG500, Kay-PENTAX CSL4500, Scicon PC-quirer, EPG, HL Synthesizer, DSP Sonagraph 5500, and IAC soundproof booth, etc. for investigation of the acoustical, articulatory, perceptual, and physiological properties of speech sounds. For the use of the soundproof booth and research tools, please refer to the booking calendar and contact the Technical Officer of the Phonetics Laboratory, Mr. Steven So, at 3442-7593 or email@example.com.
