Three experiments were performed to examine listeners' thresholds for identifying stimuli whose spectra were modeled after the vowels/I/ and /epsilon/, with the differences between these stimuli restricted to the frequency of the first formant. The stimuli were presented in a low-pass masking noise that spectrally overlapped the first formant but not the higher formants. Identification thresholds were lower when the higher formants were present than when they were not, even though the first… CONTINUE READING
