Overview

About
Difficulties with pronunciation can create barriers to employment and successful integration for newcomers to Canada. My research explores what contributes to the intelligibility of speech for second language users communicating in different language contexts and, further, seeks evidence-based solutions to help learners improve intelligibility, thus facilitating greater communicative success in their communities and workplaces.
