Prof. Dr. Tamara Rathcke

Professor of English Linguistics,
University of Konstanz

I am Professor of English Linguistics at the Linguistics department of the University of Konstanz and Senior Lecturer in Linguistics at the Modern Languages and Linguistics department of the University of Kent.

I specialise in phonetics and laboratory phonology, and much of my research crosses disciplinary boundaries. I study prosody – all things unspoken that make verbal communication rich in meaning. I serve on the editorial board of the Journal of the International Phonetic Association, and regularly review for conferences, journals, publishers and funders.

I teach courses on phonetics, phonology, morphology, sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and am available to supervise theses in any of these fields.
