LVC Lab members at work!

The Language Variation and Computation (LVC) Lab is a central base for sociolinguistic and corpus linguistic research at the University of Oregon.

Several research projects are housed at the LVC Lab.  We host (near-)weekly meetings to discuss research, both projects taking place in the lab and elsewhere.

The lab features an array of computers and student work-stations, computer-based resources (including a number of corpora – such as the British National Corpus, Switchboard, and TIMIT), a meeting area, space for perception and production experiments, and a sound-attenuated recording booth.
