Dominic Schmitz

Master's Student of Linguistics and Phonetics

My current research mainly covers the areas of tonal alignment and compensatory vowel shortening.
Besides my research I also publicize more practical articles on IT in connection with logopedics. The first printed version of such an article was published in March 2017.
