Studies of thresholds for discrimination of formant frequency variation in synthetic vowel sounds have been predominantly limited to variations in a single formant. Here, differences limens (DLs) are presented for multiformant variations expressed in measures of delta F and as distances in the auditory-perceptual space (APS) proposed by J. D. Miller [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 85, 2114-2134 (1989)]. DLs for four subjects were estimated along 102 synthetic vowel continua representing five patterns of… CONTINUE READING
