JAMES GRAMA is a postdoctoral fellow at the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language at the Australian National University, where he works on the Sydney Speaks project. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. His research focuses on sociophonetics, language variation and change, variation in creoles and underdocumented languages, and the optimization of computational methods for phonetic research. His work has appeared In Linguistics Vanguard, Journal of the International Phonetic Association, and American Speech. E-mail: email@example.com.
ROBERT KENNEDY is a senior lecturer in linguistics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His research has focused on the typology and analysis of segmental and rhythmic alternations in reduplicative phonology, with an emphasis on interactions among stress patterns, morphological structure, and allomorphic phenomena, as well as sociophonological variation within and across the vowel systems of varieties of English, especially with respect to formant dimensions and contrasts in varieties of California English. His work has appeared In Linguistic Inquiry, Phonology, and American Speech. He is also the author of Phonology: A Coursebook (Cambridge University Press, 2017), an introductory textbook for students of phonology. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
