13 Acknowledgements This is a revised version of my PhD thesis completed at the University of Melbourne and I sincerely thank my primary supervisor Prof. John Hajek as well as Assoc. Prof. Janet Fletcher for your ongoing support and for being truly great teachers. An earlier version of this work benefitted from helpful comments from Assoc. Prof. Lori Repetti and Prof. Barbara E. Bullock. Thank you also to my friend and colleague Dr. Debbie Loakes, to Matthew Absalom for sharing his corpus of Sienese speech with me and to Prof. Mike Levy at the University of Queensland for popping up at the right time. I gratefully acknowledge the support of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation through a post-doctoral award that enabled me to come to the Institute of Phonetics and Speech Processing in Munich and for supporting the publication of this work.
