Scholarship. Miquel Simonet is an experimental phonologist. Experimental phonologists employ the auxiliary theories and methods of instrumental phonetics and experimental psycholinguistics to investigate phonological competence. Miquel's principal area of expertise is phonological variation and change, including contact-induced change and phonologization (the emergence of phonological structure from highly-practiced phonetic routines), with a focus on Iberian Romance. Miquel has also conducted research on second language speech: the production, perception, and mental representation of the sounds and (the phonological structure of) words of a second language. Miquel's publications have appeared in journals such as the Journal of Phonetics, the Journal of the International Phonetic Association, Language and Speech, Second Language Research, the International Journal of Bilingualism, Phonetica, Laboratory Phonology, Linguistics, Probus, Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism, Languages, Hispania, and Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics.
