Some of Paul Boersma’s presentations

Note: after 2011, nearly all of my presentations involve live computer simulations (on neural-network and deep-learning models of the acquisition of phonology) and can therefore only be run in Praat by somebody who knows exactly which buttons to press when. That is why I have not included these presentations here.
