Anne Cutler

WP1 Speech perception and production in interaction

Anne Cutler is professor in the MARCS Institute, University of Western Sydney, and Processing program leader of the newly established ARC Centre of Excellence in the Dynamics of Language.

She studied in Australia, Germany and the US, and worked in the UK (Sussex, Cambridge) and from 1993 to 2013 as director at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Her research, of which her book Native Listening (MIT Press 2012) gives an overview, centres on human listeners’ recognition of spoken language. It has tended over the years to involve a great many cross-linguistic comparisons (e.g., English, Dutch, German, Japanese, Cantonese, Korean, Sesotho, French, Spanish, Italian, Finnish, Polish, Arabic, Telugu, Berber – so far). More publications can be found in her publication list.

In the Language in Interaction consortium she is leader of WP1 Speech perception and production in interaction.
