Terrance Nearey (PhD Linguistics, University of Connecticut) is a professor emeritus in the Department of Linguistics, which he first joined in 1976. His core research interest is experimental phonetics, with a focus on speech perception in general  (segmental, rather than prosodic)  and on explicit pattern recognition models of speech perception in particular. He also has general interest speech signal processing, including formant tracking. Lesser concerns include laboratory phonology and in experimental testing of linguistic hypotheses.
