Amanda Ritchart on the Radio

Yesterday afternoon, our own Amanda Ritchart presented her research (joint with Amalia Arvaniti) on the use and realization of uptalk in Southern California English at the 166th Acoustical Society of America meeting. This work is profiled in the ASA’s press room, and has thus far received a fair amount of attention. You can listen to a podcast of an interview with Amanda at WBUR’s Here & Now, or read more about the study at KPBS (San Diego’s public radio station), BBC News, and in the Washington Post.  The study also received this shout-out on the Linguistic Society of America website.

Congrats!
