Research in the MPI Phonetics Lab is concerned with investigating language universals and cross-linguistic variation of the world' languages sound patterns.
The research carried out at the MPI P-Lab focuses on the documentation of the sounds of endangered and little studied languages.
The MPI Phonetics Lab aims to contribute with the use cutting-edge methodologies and techniques to further phonetic theory and phonological analysis which will yield standardized descriptions in quantified form using a set of basic phonetic measures, designed to characterize both specific and universal phonetic features.
