Training Japanese listeners to identify English /r/ and /l/: IV. Some effects of perceptual learning on speech production.
The results indicate that the knowledge gained during perceptual learning of /r/ and /l/ transferred to the production domain, and thus provides novel information regarding the relationship between speech perception and production.
Fix your vowels: Computer-assisted training by Dutch learners of Spanish
It is common knowledge that foreign learners struggle when it comes to producing the sounds of the target language accurately. Research in L2 speech acquisition has shown that in order to achieve
Effects of experience on non-native speakers' production and perception of English vowels
Abstract This study assessed the effect of English-language experience on non-native speakers' production and perception of English vowels. Twenty speakers each of German, Spanish, Mandarin, and
Identifying vowels in CVC syllables: effects of inserting silence and noise.
Several different combinations of acoustic variables (including formant frequencies at particular temporal locations and formant frequency differences over time) were sufficient to yield significant separation of the three vowel categories, however, in general the performance of the discriminant classification program correlated only weakly with the identificationperformance of the listeners.
Acoustic characteristics of American English vowels.
Analysis of the formant data shows numerous differences between the present data and those of PB, both in terms of average frequencies of F1 and F2, and the degree of overlap among adjacent vowels.
Training Japanese listeners to identify English /r/ and /l/: a first report.
The results demonstrate the importance of stimulus variability and task-related factors in training nonnative speakers to perceive novel phonetic contrasts that are not distinctive in their native language.
Effects of consonant environment on vowel formant patterns.
The main purpose of the present study was to determine whether a close relationship between vowel identity and spectral change patterns is maintained when the consonant environment is allowed to vary.
Identification of vowels in “vowelless” syllables
Two vowel-perception experiments revealed the importance of dynamic spectral information at syllable onset and offset (in its proper temporal relation) in permitting vowel identification, and deprived of its durational variation, steady-state spectral information was a poor basis for identification.
Perception of dynamic information for vowels in syllable onsets and offsets
Examination of American English vowels when increasing amounts of syllable onsetsalone or syllable offsetsalone were presented in their original sentence context emphasized the perceptual importance of time-varying acoustic parameters, which are the direct consequence of the articulatory dynamics involved in producing syllables.
A cross-dialect acoustic description of vowels: Brazilian and European Portuguese.
This paper examines four acoustic correlates of vowel identity in Brazilian Portuguese (BP) and European Portuguese (EP): first formant (F1), second formant (F2), duration, and fundamental frequency
