Research areas
M.G. Busa's research focuses on second-language speech and communication, and is aimed at understanding how foreign accent, L2 prosody, and non-verbal language affect intelligibility in interactions with or between second-language speakers. She is particularly interested in investigating how speakers’ use of non-native speech and non-verbal language in the L2 leads to pragmatic failure. She is also interested in public speaking and in developing teaching methods for speaking in public based on research on human communication and non-verbal language. She has carried out extensive research investigating the acoustic, perceptual and aerodynamic characteristics of sound patterns in a variety of languages as part of a goal to explore variation in speech and its relation to linguistic sound change.
