Apps and Websites

Here are a list of apps and websites that I have designed and developed for the English Language and Linguistics Department at Glasgow university. The websites focuses on phonetics which is the study and classification of speech sounds. At the moment I am coming up with new ideas on how phonetics can be used for students especially for the study of speech and sounds through interactive IPA symbols as well as coming up with new ideas and useful teaching resources for websites.


The Sounds of the City project at Glasgow University looks into speech sounds of Glasgow past and present. Just as the landscape of the city has experienced transformations over time, the speech of its residents has been continuously changing. To view the website click here
Seeing Speech is an interactive International Phonetic Association (IPA) chart website! Clicking on the IPA symbols on our charts will allow you to listen to their sounds and see vocal-organ movements imaged with ultrasound, MRI, or in animated form. Click here to view the website
BAAP is the professional organisation for phoneticians in the British Isles. Its members are involved in research in phonetics, in teaching phonetics in higher education, and in the application of phonetic knowledge in areas such as speech and language therapy, speech technology and forensic science.

Glasgow UnIversity Laboratory of Phonetics (GULP) is a research and teaching laboratory which also has a main lab and a specialist-recording studio, located within English Language. Its facilities support teaching for Honor’s (third and fourth year) undergraduate students, as well as master’s and Doctoral students, and staff and research fellows also benefit.
