Dr. Augustine Agwuele

PhD linguistics, University of Texas at Austin, USA.

MA German, Pedagogy and English, Friedrich-Schiller University at Jena, Germany.

Research Interests
(a) Phonetics: (experimental)

I am interested in the variability associated with the production and perception of sequences of vowel-consonant-vowel. The aim is to understand the programming principles that account for the variability as well as how coarticulatory processes are influenced by suprasegmental factors.

(b) Language and Society
Peoples and Cultures of (West) Africa

I am also interested in the intersection of language with society. Language encodes the life of a community and provides a lens through which we can study various aspects of a community and its inhabitants.
