Several studies on place perception of prevocalic stop consonants have shown that the apparent perceptual weight of release burst and formant transitions depends on the vowel context: bursts carry higher perceptual weight in high front vowel contexts like /i/ than in low non-front vowel contexts like /a/, while the reverse holds for formant transitions. This finding is generally interpreted as reflecting a context-dependent "reweighting" of burst and transition cues by the perceptual system. In… CONTINUE READING
