Marie K. Huffman
Ph.D. 1989, University of California, Los Angeles
Marie Huffman does research in phonetics, including how fine details of pronunciation are affected by linguistic structure and communicative context. Her recent research addresses how speakers adapt pronunciation due to partner language/dialect and communicative setting and how the sound systems of L1 and L2 interact in adult language learners. Professor Huffman has been awarded grants from the National Science Foundation for innovation in integrating teaching and research, and is currently co-PI on a multidisciplinary project funded by the National Science Foundation entitled Communication in the Global University: A Longitudinal Study of Language Adaptation at Multiple Timescales in Native- and Non-Native Speakers , a project housed jointly in Psychology, Linguistics and Asian and Asian-American studies.
