I'm a PhD candidate in #linguistics at Latrobe Uni. Doing an acoustic analysis of fricatives, affricates, and lexical tone in Lisu and Lipo. Or trying to, at least.
Areas of interest include #phonetics (mostly acoustic analysis, but I'd love to branch out into articulatory or perceptual studies as well), #phonology, #typology, #LanguageVariation, #EndangeredLanguages, and #LanguageDescription.
Outside of academia, I love to run (trying to get back into shape for another crack at Tough Mudder later in the year), game (very excited about #TI8 atm), practice my Chinese (and dabble in new languages, when I get the chance), and play various TTRPGs. If I somehow manage to scrounge up the time, I fully intend to get back into kung fu again, but as the PhD comes along that seems less and less likely.
@rael_stanley Hi welcome :)
@rael_stanley nice to find a fellow phonetician!
@drewaword right back at you!
