It's been a while, I guess, since we had the lowliest of all post types, the 'hey, I found something cool on another blog' post, but somebody called my attention yesterday to this post called "Speech: Not enough distinctions are being made" over at Talking Brains, specifically aimed at treatments of spoken language processing. Those guys are good.
We've got a suddenly thriving group of sound people here on campus, and I have to call them 'sound people' because they include not only phonologists and phoneticians, but engineers and stats people and who knows who all. Some of them have been discussing the 'false parsimony' of linguistic theory lately, a kind of Occam meets slasher flick approach to understanding language. Talking Brains seems (seem? No.) to be on the same wavelength there.
Image from here, and aside from the nice graphic, it's worth visiting just to read 'legolicious' used in context.
