Have you adjusted your speech patterns while wearing a mask?  New research out of UC Davis shows mask wearers are using clearer, more exaggerated speech that can actually make it easier for the person they're talking with to understand.  Dr. Michelle Cohn, UC Davis Research Fellow of Linguistics, Computer Science, & Psychology, led the project. She joined KCBS Radio news anchor, Rebecca Corral, with more on these results.
