Omnia Ibrahim joined the URPP Language and Space in October 2018 and is employed at the Institute of Computational Linguistics since December 2019.
PhD project: linguistic accommodation in Human-Human and Human - Robot interactions
The main goal is to investigate the various social (age and gender) and situational factors, which effect the Linguistics accommodation at Human-Human and Human - Robot interactions.
- What is the role of linguistic accommodation in early language development?
- What are the stages of linguistic accommodation development?
- Do children accommodate at all, and do mothers accommodate to their children?
Supervisors: Sabine Stoll and Volker Dellwo
Funding source: URPP Language and Space / Institute of Computational Linguistics
Omnia earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in 2011 from the Phonetics and Linguistics Department in Alexandria University. She went on to obtain a Master of Arts degree from the same department in 2017.
Her master thesis was entitled "Building audio- visual Arabic phonetically annotated corpus for speech processing purposes". The building of the corpus consisted of 6 main stages: speaker selection, sentences selection, recording, analysis, annotation and evaluation.
Since 2012, she was a teaching assistant in phonetics and linguistics department, Faculty of Arts, Alexandria University.
- Course 1: physiological phonetics (1, 2).
- Course 2: Acoustic phonetics (1, 2).
- Course 3: Auditory phonetics.
