Professor Hume's research focusses on understanding the sound systems underlying human language and the diversity of factors that influence them. Working with collaborators from the US and Canada, she is investigating how the predictability of words influences how they are produced. Another line of research studies the physical and cognitive factors that influence how we perceive speech sounds. Her research draws on data using descriptive, experimental and corpus-based methods.
