Anastasia Chionidou is currently a PhD candidate in Linguistics at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, School of English, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She holds a BA in English Language and Literature and an MA in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics. Her interest lies in experimental phonetics. For her PhD thesis, entitled “Phonological acquisition by Greek-Albanian, Greek-English and Greek-German bilingual children in selected educational backgrounds: Theoretical and pedagogical implications”, she conducts phonetic analysis of stops and clusters in bilingual speech. Her PhD research is funded by the THALIS project BALED (Bilingual Acquisition & Bilingual Education). She is also part of the THALIS project VOCALECT (Vowels of Greek dialects). This project has given her the opportunity to explore more experimental phonetic techniques such as electropalatography and Ultrasound Tongue Imaging (UTI).
She also has a keen interest in coarticulation and connected speech processes. For her MA thesis she investigated British casual speech (RP) and assessed the influence that connected speech processes exert on the perception abilities of Greek learners of English as a foreign language.
