Brief description You came TO DIE?! Perceptual adaptation to regional accents as a new lens on the puzzle of spoken word recognition. Investigating Australian, New Zealand and UK listeners adaptation to each others accents will reveal how we achieve stable word recognition via flexible adjustment to pronunciation differences. Results will inform word recognition theory and illuminate why unfamiliar accents are difficult for language learners and automatic speech recognisers.
