Humans can derive sequential dependencies from unfamiliar artificial speech within several of minutes of exposure. However, there is an ongoing debate about the nature of the underlying learning processes. In a widely discussed study Pea et al. [Pea, M., Bonatti, L. L., Nespor, M., & Mehler, J. Signal-driven computations in speech processing. Science, 298, 604607, 2002] argued for the importance of subtle acoustic cues in the signal, such as pauses, in order to switch between two computational… CONTINUE READING
