When spectral properties differ across successive sounds, this difference is perceptually magnified, resulting in spectral contrast effects (SCEs). Recently, Stilp, Anderson, and Winn [(2015) J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 137(6), 3466-3476] revealed that SCEs are graded: more prominent spectral peaks in preceding sounds produced larger SCEs (i.e., category boundary shifts) in categorization of subsequent vowels. Here, a similar relationship between spectral context and SCEs was replicated in… CONTINUE READING
