The cognition test results of audio (A) and audio-visual (AV) effects on nine English emotions in a short sentence were compared to the physio-acoustic features of sound used for the cognition tests. Two groups of Japanese learners of English (JL2) and one group of English speakers (EL1) participated in these A and AV cognition tests. In the physioacoustic analyses we used F0 and intensity contours and calculated the area of sentential patterns and three forms of distance: area-, average, and…

Respiratory and Respiratory Muscular Control in JL1's and JL2's Text Reading Utilizing 4-RSTs and a Soft Respiratory Mask with a Two-Way Bulb
TLDR
Text reading speed was more stable in L1 than in L2, and the lower abdomen was controllable, which may indicate “stomach respiration,” and the vital capacity volume did not sufficiently correlate with the subjects’ expiratory and inspiratory air volume during speech.

TLDR
The results showed that the vocal expression of emotion was strongly identified, except in the case of fear, and that the six basic emotions could be plotted in a psychological space with two dimensions calculated from multidimensional scaling.
Principles of phonetics
TLDR
This chapter discusses the relationship between phonetics and phonology, and the temporal organization of speech continuity and rate, and evaluates general phonetic theory.
A method for automatic extraction of model parameters from fundamental frequency contours of speech
TLDR
This paper presents a method for pre-processing a measured F0 contour to obtain its approximation consisting of third-order polynomial segments that are continuous and differentiable everywhere and allows one to obtain first-order approximations to the parameters of accent commands and phrase commands.
