In this paper it is shown that at the edges of prosodic domains, initial consonant and final vowels have more extreme (less reduced) lingual articulations, which are called articulatory strengthening. Linguopalatal contact for consonants and vowels in different prosodic positions was compared, using reiterant-speech versions of sentences with a variety of(More)
This study examines the e!ect of prosodic position on segmental properties of Korean consonants /n, t, t, t*/ along the articulatory parameters peak linguopalatal contact and stop seal duration, and several acoustic parameters. These parameters were compared in initial position in di!erent domains of the Korean prosodic hierarchy. The "rst result is that(More)
* Abstract Recent experimental work indicates that by the age of ten months, infants have already learned a great deal about the phonotactics (legal sounds and sound sequences) of their language. This learning occurs before infants can utter words or apprehend most phonological alternations. I will show that this early learning stage can be modeled with(More)
We investigated the relationship between dyslexia and three aspects of language: speech perception, phonology, and morphology. Reading and language tasks were administered to dyslexics aged 8-9 years and to two normal reader groups (age-matched and reading-level matched). Three dyslexic groups were identified: phonological dyslexics (PD), developmentally(More)
This study is a first step in a large-scale study that aims at quantifying the relationship between external facial movements, tongue movements, and the acoustics of speech sounds. The database analyzed consisted of 69 CV syllables spoken by two males and two females; each utterance was repeated four times. A Qualysis (optical motion capture system) and an(More)
This study examines relationships between external face movements, tongue movements, and speech acoustics for consonant-vowel (CV) syllables and sentences spoken by two male and two female talkers with different visual intelligibility ratings. The questions addressed are how relationships among measures vary by syllable, whether talkers who are more(More)
In recent years, we have seen a real deepening of our understanding of the nature of poetic meter and the English metrical system. In part, this has resulted from the application of the formal methods oflinguistics to metrical study-the willingness to formulate metrical rules explicitly and to check out their consequences has naturally led to progress.(More)
Phonological awareness and phoneme identification tasks were administered to dyslexic children and both chronological age (CA) and reading-level (RL) comparison groups. Dyslexic children showed less sharply defined categorical perception of a bath-path continuum varying voice onset time when compared to the CA but not the RL group. The dyslexic children(More)
Developmental dyslexia refers to a group of children who fail to learn to read at the normal rate despite apparently normal vision and neurological functioning. Dyslexic children typically manifest problems in printed word recognition and spelling, and difficulties in phonological processing are quite common The phonological processing problems include, but(More)
