Perceptual learning for speech
This article reviews several recent lines of research on perceptual learning for speech and shows that listeners are capable of redeveloping their speech categorization to bring it into alignment with new variation in their speech input.
Phonemic restoration: insights from a new methodology.
- A. Samuel
- Psychology, PhysicsJournal of experimental psychology. General
Improved methodology was used to test the hypothesis that restoration depends upon the bottom-up confirmation of expectations generated at higher levels, and increasing listeners' expectations of a phoneme increased perceptual restoration: missing segments in words were better restored than corresponding pieces in phonologically legal pseudowords.
Perceptual learning for speech: Is there a return to normal?
Generalization in perceptual learning for speech
Lexical context strongly influences listeners’ identification of ambiguous sounds. For example, a sound midway between /f/ and /s/ is reported as /f/ in “sheri_’” but as /s/ in “Pari_.” Norris,…

Inhibition of return: A graphical meta-analysis of its time course and an empirical test of its temporal and spatial properties
This analysis showed that IOR is impressively stable for SOAs of 300-1,600 msec and showed that the literature does not provide any clear sense of the duration of IOR, and an empirical approach was taken to fill this gap in knowledge of the phenomenon.

Does lexical information influence the perceptual restoration of phonemes

A critical issue in modeling speech perception is whether lexical representations can affect lower level (e.g., phonemic) processing. Phonemic restoration studies have provided support for such…
The use of rhythm in attending to speech.
The results suggest that attention may be preferentially allocated to stressed syllables during speech processing, however, a normal sentence context may not provide strong predictive cues to lexical stress, limiting the use of the attentional focus.
