The nasal consonants /m, n/ are often confused in the presence of background noise. In addition, these consonants are difficult to recognize reliably by machine. In this study, the perception of the place of articulation for nasal consonants in adverse conditions is examined through a series of perceptual experiments. The experiments examined the effects of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN), and additive speech-shaped noise on nasal place perception in CV syllables. Results show a strong… CONTINUE READING
