In a variety of experiments and paradigms, researchers have attempted to determine whether or not speech perception is specialized by comparing perception of speech syllables to perception of nonspeech analogs. While nonspeech analogs appear optimal as comparisons to speech because they are acoustically similar without being recognized as speechlike, it is argued that the comparison they offer is confounded and uninterpretable. Two experiments are designed to show that, in auditory perception… CONTINUE READING
