Research

Dr. Jeon's research has focuses on experimental phonetics and the interface between phonetics and phonology in the first and second language. She has been interested in speech rhythm, intonation and functions of prosody, e.g. grouping and marking communicative functions. Recently, she has extended the scope of her research to segmental phonetic variations and their communicative roles and the paralinguistic use of speech prosody.
