About Me

I’m Charys (pronounced [ˈkʰɛ.ɹɪs]), and I am pursuing an MA in Linguistics at the UofC under Dr. Winters. I graduated with a BA Honours in Linguistics (where I wrote a thesis about the change in stress placement in suffixed words in English over the past two centuries), and I work in the L2+ Sound Learning Lab (which is studying the effects of aural perceptual training on adult learners of German and how it is linked to orthography). My research interests are acoustic phonetics, L2 phonology, and historical English. My native language is Canadian English, and I also speak French, German, and Italian.

In my spare time, you can find me playing disc golf, embroidering, or playing video games.
