Felicity is a phonetician who has been teaching phonetics and phonology in tertiary education since 1983. She has held lecturing positions at Sydney University's Faculty of Health Sciences and Macquarie University. Felicity has been at Macquarie since 1991 and is co-convenor of the Bachelor of Speech and Hearing Sciences.  Her postgraduate teaching and supervision involves students from the Master of Applied Linguistics, the Master of Speech and Language Pathology and the PhD program.

Research Projects

Felicity's main research interest is the sociophonetic examination of Australian English. Her work involves the acoustic analysis of speech sounds with the goal of addressing issues of accent history, evolution, variation and status.

Felicity is a member of The International Phonetic Association, The Australian Speech Science and Technology Association and the Australian Linguistic Society. She is also on the editorial board of the Australian Journal of Linguistics.

Research

The Australian Ancestors Project. This research involves an acoustic phonetic analysis of historical speech data and continues to provide important insights into the history of Australian English and the nature of sound change in language generally. The extensive historical database generated by this project contains valuable material for the examination of current phonetic theories and through this work we are developing new methods and techniques in quantifying language change.

The acoustic examination of Ethnocultural Varieties of Australian English: Through this project we are able to contribute to the discussions of new dialect development, ethnocultural varieties and the role of metrical structure in segmental articulation. We will additionally be able to provide data for forensic purposes as there are currently no extensive databases available for these diverse varieties of Australian English.

The articulatory and acoustic examination of /l/ variation in Australian English: This research involves the investigation of velarised /l/, its coarticulatory effects and its realisation in super-heavy syllables. The use of electropalatography, electromagnetic articulography, ultrasound and standard acoustic analysis in the examination of /l/ will further enhance our understanding of the relationship between various hierarchical levels in speech production. The production of /l/ is interesting from a phonetic perspective because Australian English is progressive with respect to /l/ sandi. This project will shed new light on the processes by which syllables are constructed in different dialects.

The Australian Voices Project. This work is based on our long term commitment to the sociophonetic analysis of Australian English and involves the examination of accent variation that occurs within Australia. The aim is to construct a model to accurately depict sociophonetic variation and ultimately a speech atlas for Australian English. Our research is paramount if we are to provide satisfactory current information on accent variation and differentiation in Australia.

The relationship between production and perception in sound change. The aim of this project is to examine WHAT major sound changes have occurred in Australian English during the past century, explore WHY certain sound changes have occurred, and investigate HOW the observed sound changes have spread through the lexicon.

Phonological  effects on the development of inflectional morphology. This project investigates the mechanisms underlying typically developing children's variable omission of inflectional morphemes (e.g. plural, past tense). The results will have significant implications for the evaluation and design of interventions for language-delayed populations where serious
problems of communication persist.
