• Danielle Daidone has a dual PhD in Second Language Studies and Hispanic Linguistics from Indiana University. She researches second language phonology, with a particular emphasis on training sound perception, examining the mental representations of words, and evaluating the utility of non-native perception tasks. She also works on documenting and analyzing instructor input in the language classroom, as well as the acquisition of variation in Spanish.
