This study explored the prediction that local speaking rate context affects the perception of voice-onset time (VOT) in initial stop consonants not only for ambiguous stimuli at the category boundary, but also for good exemplars from the category center [Volaitis and Miller, J. Acoust, Soc. Am. 92, 723-735 (1992)]. Naturally produced exemplars of the voiceless phonetic category were presented in the context of syllables produced at fast or slow speaking rates in a series of perceptual tasks… CONTINUE READING
