Our own senior lecturer, Dr Peter Petrucci, was one of the finalists in Massey University Students’ Association’s Manawatu lecturer of the year!

Nominated and voted for by students, Peter is often addressed as /pi:tər:/ by the internal students. (hmmm hoping that schwa turns up)

As he teaches phonology, perhaps we can use distinctive features to describe Peter’s teaching style

[+ fun]

[+ informative]

[- obscure]

[+ committed]

(Perhaps, [+informative] is an example of overspecification?)

Well done,  Peter.

Dr Petrucci was unavailable for comment.
