Research Project

Smart Mouthguard

Currently, there are not many tools used to see what the tongue is doing when someone is speaking. For linguists and speech pathologists, such tools would be desirable to have. The goal of the project is to create a mouthpiece used to gather data on how the tongue is used in speech, and more specifically, how the tongue interacts with the palate of one’s mouth in speech.
