Michael Wagner is an Associate Professor of Experimental Linguistics at McGill. He received his Ph.D. at MIT in 2005, and started at McGill in 2008. Michael’s research focuses on prosody. ‘Prosody’ encompasses all those acoustic aspects of an utterance that are not due to the choice of words, but reflect syntactic grouping, emphasis, negotiate turn-taking, reflect emotional attitude, or distinguish different speech acts.
