Dr Angélica Carlet’s principal research interests lie in the field of inter-linguistic phonetics. The influence of the native language’s phonology on the acquisition of a second language constitutes the main area of her interest along with the effect of High Variability Phonetic Training (HVPT) for non-native speakers of English. Moreover, her research investigates the effect of formal instruction (FI) on learners’ oral skills, the contribution of visual and auditory cues in the perception of native and non-native consonants and the use of duration as a cue to second language perception. Dr Carlet has carried out research stays at the Universidade Federal do Paraná, University College of London (UCL) and Aarhus University.
