Novel phonotactic learning: Tracking syllable-position and co-occurrence constraints
Publication date: October 2017 Source:Journal of Memory and Language, Volume 96 Author(s): Amélie Bernard Are syllable-level and co-occurrence representations simultaneously available when one learns novel phonotactics? After training on word-medial consonant restrictions (e.g., word-medial onsets P/Z, codas D/F, and cross-syllable consonant clusters FP/DZ in items like baF.Pev, tiD.Zek), adults falsely recognized novel items containing restricted consonants with the same co-occurrences (e.g., FP) more often than those with different co-occurrences (e.g., FZ) when syllable-position information was kept constant (e.g., vuF.Pet vs. vuF.Zet; Experiment 1). Thus, adults tracked co-occurrence information. Additionally, even when co-occurrence information was different from training, participants more often falsely recognized novel items that contained restricted consonants in the same (e.g., onset-Z) rather than different syllable positions (e.g., coda-Z), whether the restricted consonants were in the same (word-medial, e.g., vuF.Zet vs. vuZ.Fet, Experiment 2) or different word positions (word-edge, e.g., Zut.veF vs. Fut.veZ, Experiment 3). Thus, adults also tracked syllable-level information. These findings show that adults spontaneously represent sound sequences at multiple levels.

Hello! I just got an email today about my acceptance into Boston University’s DPT program with a Sargent Scholarship! Very excited, but also very torn because I have a sizable scholarship to Drexel University as well, which will make tuition at Drexel a good 30k less than Boston. So I was just wondering if anyone else has heard back from Boston University, and whether or not they are considering attending. I live on the west coast so I’ve never been to the BU campus, so if anyone has... Anyone else hear from Boston University?

Hi Everyone!, I am very interested in one day opening my own private practice and/or joining a firm. I am trying to find the best path. There is a lot to consider regarding different schools of thought, length of time, cost, job market, and projected salary. I am trying to find the quickest way to get to this goal while still being able to be competitive in the market. I have heard of stories of people getting degrees and them and their classmates unable to find jobs due to their degree... Which graduate degree should I pursue?

What a cycle! I'm honored to have been accepted to both of these amazing schools, but I'm not sure how to choose what's right for me. I'm worried about moving to a place like St. Louis, but I also feel like the WashU name is going to give me more. Any thoughts on how to choose between these two schools? What factors would people look at?
