Professor Vogel and PhD students organize a special session on Phonation at the 2015 annual meeting of the Linguistic Society of America!

The “creaky voice” or “vocal fry” voice quality, or phonation, has recently received (generally negative) attention in the media as a relatively new development in the speech of younger, typically female, speakers of American English. A Special Session on this topic was organized for the annual meeting of Linguistic Society of America in Portland, Oregon on January 10, 2015 by Professsor Irene Vogel and three PhD students (Angeliki Athanasopoulou, Nadya Pincus and Taylor Miller). The 5 papers and 6 associated posters included in the Session presented rigorous research, rather than subjective assessments and pseudo-scientific pronouncements, regarding creaky voice.
