Identification and discrimination of Mandarin Chinese tones by Mandarin Chinese vs. French listeners
Previous work has not yielded clear conclusions about the categorical nature of perception of tone contrasts by native listeners of tone languages. We reopen this issue in a cross-linguistic studyExpand

Cross language phonetic influences on the speech of French-English bilinguals

We examined the voice onset times (VOTs) of monolingual and bilingual speakers of English and French to address the question whether cross language phonetic influences occur particularly in simultaneous bilinguals (that is, speakers who learned both languages from birth). Expand

A voice for the voiceless: Production and perception of assimilated stops in French

Processing of illegal consonant clusters: a case of perceptual assimilation?
Evidence is presented for a perceptual shift affecting consonant clusters that are phonotactically illegal, albeit pronounceable, in French. They are perceived as phonetically close legal clusters.Expand

Speech versus nonspeech in pitch memory.
The memory trace of the pitch sensation induced by a standard tone (S) can be strongly degraded by subsequently intervening sounds (I). Deutsch [Science 168, 1604-1605 (1970)] suggested that theExpand

Evidence for Tone-Specific Activity of the Sternohyoid Muscle in Modern Standard Chinese
The role of the cricothyroid muscle (CT) in raising F0 is well understood, but the activity of F0-lowering strap muscles such as the sternohyoid (SH) has been less thoroughly investigated, especiallyExpand
