My scientific interests lie in English Phonetics and Phonology.  My special focus is on the suprasegmental aspects of the English language and rhythm in particular as well as the acquisition of it by EFL learners.

One of the key approaches to enhance the perception and production of English suprasegmentals is the use of music. It is usually assumed that individuals have separate faculties for language and music. Indeed, language and music are two distinctive cognitive domains, however they seem to possess a number of substantial similarities as well. Taking into account the scholastic evidence on the interrelationship between language and music in terms of evolution, cognition, neurology, education, language acquisition and other fields, music can be defined as a powerful aid to enhance memory and recall as well as increase concentration, sensibility and automatisation of the skill.
