Laboratoire Parole et Langage (CNRS, ILCB y Aix-Marseille University)

Created in 1972, the Laboratoire Parole et Langage (LPL) is a joint research unit affiliated to both the CNRS and Aix-Marseille University (AMU). Its members include
phoneticians, linguists, computer scientists, psychologists, neuroscientists, physicists and medical practitioners. The LPL’s activities focus on the mechanisms involved in the production, perception and understanding of spoken and written language in their natural contexts. The lab features an experimental platform (CEP) that allows lab members but also external researchers to access an interesting set of instruments for measuring speech and language related variables. More specifically the platform includes a team of engineers and technicians holding expertise on
measuring voice and acoustic parameters, but also articulatory, physiological, neurophysiological and behavioral variables and finally a solid experience in recording audio-video corpora in various interactional situations.
