Dynamic versus static specification for the perceptual identity of a coarticulated vowel


This paper presents a perceptual experiment on stimuli synthesized by means of a vocal tract area function model. The purpose was to compare the contribution of dynamic against static information to the identity of a coarticulated vowel. Three sources of information were perceptually analyzed: (i) the vowel nucleus; (ii) the acoustical contrast between the… (More)
