Space To Create! | Voice Maps

15 February 2020

12–4pm | Free Entry

Led by Dr Sophie Holmes-Elliott (lecturer in Linguistics, University of Southampton) invites you to explore the uniqueness and value of you and your family’s voices. You’ll learn about the phonetic and sociolinguistic science behind your own voice and accent, and you’ll then be guided through the use of cutting-edge software that will allow you to create a ‘map’ of your voice and make it into a badge.
