- Individual phonetic variation in the SCOTUS speech corpus, Carissa Abrego-Collier, in progress
This dissertation introduces the SCorpus and focuses on an 8-year time period (2004-2011) characterized by significant demographic and political changes on the Court, first analyzing synchronic variability for 4 of the Court’s justices (Alito, Sotomayor, Kagan, and Roberts), and then turning to a time-dependent analysis of each speaker’s vowel system. By modeling individual phonetic patterns over various time scales (e.g., months, full terms, and multi-year periods), it examines patterns of time-dependent phonetic variation to explore the relationship between group dynamics and intraspeaker variability over time, taking advantage of the unique features offered by the SCOTUS data.
