Mon, 09/23/2019 — LAWRENCE – Even though they are not needed to make the specific sounds, parts of Mandarin Chinese speakers’ faces – their eyebrows and lips – mimic the rising and falling pitch that distinguishes one word spelled exactly the same from another. In other words, speakers' eyebrows follow the sounds their throat is making. This is the finding of a new study co-written by Allard Jongman and Joan Sereno, University of Kansas professors of linguistics. They say it implies the need to study whether these subtle facial movements help listeners perceive what the speakers are trying to convey. Along with Canadian university colleagues Saurabh Garg, Ghassan Hamarneh and Yue
