50th Anniversary Linguistics Colloquium | L2 English users’ perception of pitch modulation cues, April 22

The Linguistics Colloquium series presents Dr. Christine MoonKyoung Cho discussing “L2 English users’ perception of pitch modulation cues” on Friday, April 22, from 12:55 to 1:50 p.m. via Microsoft TEAMS.

Contact Dr. David Bell, associate professor and chair of Linguistics at Ohio University.


Cho is assistant professor of Applied Linguistics at Wenzhou-Kean University, Wenzhou, China, and was formerly a faculty member in the Linguistics Department at OHIO.


Abstract: This talk presents recent research, and associated development work on L2 users’ perception of English pitch modulations. The colloquium provides empirical evidence of L2 English learners’ difficulties in perceiving English pitch modulations. It also discusses the ramifications of this phenomenon, which can help understand L2 English learners’ pragmatic challenges.
