Kasia Hitczenko at NECphon

November 7 at Delaware, Kasia Hitczenko presents Modeling adaptation to a novel accent at NECphon, the Northeast Computational Phonology Workshop. The paper concerns adaptation to novel accents, and argues, relying on recent work by former Baggett Fellow, Dave Kleinschmidt, that the best model of this is one in which the listener's phonetic categories are both shifted and expanded.
