The Lab of Linguistics (LoL) at Reed College was created to give students and faculty better resources to conduct research. Housed in Eliot 101D, this lab has a variety of equipment for student projects, including theses, term papers, and independent studies. All current Linguistics majors are able to access this lab.

People

While Sameer ud Dowla Khan is Lab Director, the day-to-day activity of the LoL is carried out by the student Lab Manager, Liam Käch (kachl@reed.edu). For inquiries regarding equipment, lab space, or software, Liam has lab office hours in Eliot 101D on Mondays (1-2pm) and Thursdays (4-5pm); additionally, the LoL is also open Sundays (3-7pm). We also have a team of undergraduate RAs diligently working on a number of research projects led by linguistics faculty members. Visit our LoL people page to see who's currently around in the lab.

Equipment

The LoL is stocked with audio recorders, microphones, headphones, speakers, cameras, and laptops for checkout to current linguistics majors. In addition, there are larger pieces of equipment for aerodynamic, electroglottographic, ultrasound, and static palatographic research. Check out our LoL equipment page for our full inventory.

Research

There's always multiple projects going on in the LoL, including senior thesis work, semester-long projects for courses, faculty research, and collaborations between faculty and students. All linguistics students and faculty are welcome to use the lab space for such projects. Some of the long-term faculty-led projects going on right now are listed on our LoL research page.
