In vowel height contrasts, tongue height and soft palate height covary. A series of vowel classification experiments examined the perceptual interactions between F1 and nasalization, the principal acoustic correlates of these articulations. Listeners classified imperfectly discriminable stimuli in the set of tasks that compose the Garner paradigm.(More)
In vowel perception, nasalization and height (the inverse of the first formant, F1) interact. This paper asks whether the interaction results from a sensory process, decision mechanism, or both. Two experiments used vowels varying in height, degree of nasalization, and three other stimulus parameters: the frequency region of F1, the location of the nasal(More)
This paper presents evidence that the acoustic effects of demonstrably independent articulations are integrated in the perception of vowel height and [voice] contrasts. This evidence supports two hypotheses: That, in at least some instances, articulatory covariation is perceptually motivated, and that the objects of speech perception are auditory rather(More)
