Continuity Based Grouping Affects the Perception of Vowel-nasal Syllables

  title={Continuity Based Grouping Affects the Perception of Vowel-nasal Syllables},
  author={Georg Meyer and William Barry},
Auditory scene analysis (ASA) is a theoretical framework that aims to explain the auditory perceptual organization. We test the hypothesis that formant continuity is used to link speech segments. Three experiments are described that investigate listeners’ ability to use the formant continuity cues to categorise the synthetic nasal /m/ and vowel-nasal syllables. The first experiment shows that, without formant transitions, the perception of a synthetic nasal /m/ changes from /m/ for vowels with… CONTINUE READING
