As students in our department, you have access to a number of resources, including work space, equipment, and software.
All students can access available equipment during regular department hours (Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.). Some portable equipment may also be borrowed for longer periods.
There are a number of commercial software packages that are not normally available in other campus computing facilities installed in our lab workstations, including Matlab, E-Prime, Praat, Adobe and Sony Audio/Video editing suites, and more.
Through the linguistics department, you also have access to a number of phonetics resources, like the Multimedia IPA chart.
Our department houses three labs. The Phonetics Lab is open to all UVic linguistics students (Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.). Other labs (such as the Speech Research Lab and the Sociolinguistics Research Lab) require special access.
