UCSD Phonetics Lab


Welcome to UCSD’s Phonetics Lab! We are located in 4432 AP&M. The focus of the laboratory is to study sound articulation, acoustics, perception, and patterning in adults. The lab is currently equipped with a sound booth for high-quality audio recordings, electroglottography for measuring indirect vocal fold contact, as well as a system for measuring airflow and air pressure.
