Swedish nonsense syllables /ɡiɡ/, /ɡyɡ/, /ɡeɡ/ and /ɡøɡ/, produced by four speakers, were video-recorded and presented to male and female subjects in auditory, visual and audiovisual mode and also in cross-dubbed audiovisual form with incongruent cues to vowel openness, roundedness, or both. With audiovisual stimuli, subjects perceived openness nearly(More)
Auditory, visual and audiovisual syllables with and without conflicting vowel cues (/i y e ø/) presented to men and women showed (1) most to perceive roundedness by eye rather than by ear, (2) a mostly male minority to be less relying on vision, (3) presence of lip rounding to be noticed more easily than absence, and (4) all to perceive openness by ear(More)
Audiovisual speech perception was investigated in three different conditions: (i) binaurally, where the same sound was presented in both ears, (ii) monaurally, where the sound was presented in one ear randomly, and (iii) dichotically, where the subjects were asked to focus on what was heard in the right ear. The results showed visual influence to be lowered(More)
In analyses and models of audiovisual speech perception, it has been common to consider three percepts: (1) the auditory percept evoked by acoustic stimuli, (2) the visual percept evoked by optic stimuli and (3) a common percept evoked by synchronous optic and acoustic stimuli. Here, it is shown that a vocal percept that is heard and influenced by vision(More)
A series of speech reading experiments were carried out to examine the ability to discriminate between Swedish and Finnish among L2 learners of Swedish and Spanish as their mother tongue. This group was compared with native speakers of Swedish and a group with no knowledge in Swedish or Finnish. The results showed tendencies, that familiarity with Swedish(More)
