Recent experiments showed that the perception of vowel length by German listeners exhibits the characteristics of categorical perception. The present study sought to find the neural activity reflecting categorical vowel length and the short-long boundary by examining the processing of non-contrastive durations and categorical length using MEG.

The German vowel system shows a complex structure based on the interaction between vowel duration and formant structures between short and long cognates. This leads to the question how vowel duration is processed. The perception of vowel duration in German native speakers was tested by an identification test, a goodness rating and an adaptive discrimination(More)
A frequently replicated finding is that higher frequency words tend to be shorter and contain more strongly reduced vowels. However, little is known about potential differences in the articulatory gestures for high vs. low frequency words. The present study made use of electromagnetic articulography to investigate the production of two German vowels, [i](More)
The German vowel system has a complex structure comprising a quantity distinction depending on lexical stress and syllable struc‐ ture. The present study investigated the neu‐ ral and behavioral processing of duration in vowels and non‐speech stimuli in German native speakers. The speech material consisted of a disyllabic, trochaic nonsense word /tat@/, in(More)
