Verbal repetition is conventionally considered to require motor-reproduction of only the phonologically relevant content of a perceived linguistic stimulus, while imitation of incidental acoustic properties of the stimulus is not an explicit part of this task. Exemplar-based theories of speech processing, however, would predict that imitation beyond linguistic reproduction may occur in word repetition. Five experiments were conducted in which verbal audio-motor translations had to be performed… Expand
Imitation of para-phonological detail following left hemisphere lesions
TLDR
Voxel-based lesion-symptom mapping revealed that different areas within the left temporal plane influenced the degree of imitation of phonetic and prosodic detail in repetition. Expand
Thinking on Treating Echolalia in Aphasia: Recommendations and Caveats for Future Research Directions
TLDR
It seems that verbal imitation is not the same as verbal repetition because in the latter, the auditory stimulus is intentionally repeated and the reproduced speech contains relevant phonological information, but the incidental acoustic features of the perceived stimulus are not invariably mimicked. Expand
Unintended imitation of fundamental frequency in female speakers
TLDR
Im imitation of fundamental frequency (Fo) in nine healthy females in a repetition task showed different patterns regarding the effect on Fo, thus indicating that some individuals are more likely to change their speaking Fo in the repetition task than others. Expand
Phonological manipulation between speech perception and production activates a parieto-frontal circuit
TLDR
It is proposed that these parieto-frontal regions are recruited when the task requires phonological manipulation over and above the more automated transfer of auditory into articulatory verbal codes, which appears to involve area Spt. Expand
Do Patients With Neurogenic Speech Sound Impairments Benefit From Auditory Priming With a Regular Metrical Pattern?
TLDR
The facilitating effect of regular (trochaic) word stress on speech accuracy in patients with AOS and patients with PI confirmed, and an influence of the metrical regularity of speech input in both patient groups was revealed. Expand
Shared and distinct neural correlates of vowel perception and production
Recent neurobiological models postulate that sensorimotor interactions play a key role in speech perception and speech motor control, especially under adverse listening conditions or in case ofExpand
Prediction and imitation in speech
TLDR
This account posits that listeners simulate speakers' utterances by computing forward-model predictions at many different levels, which are then compared to the incoming phonetic input, which assumes parity between production and perception. Expand
Converging toward a common speech code: imitative and perceptuo-motor recalibration processes in speech production
TLDR
In a non-interactive situation of communication, online unintentional and voluntary imitative changes in relevant acoustic features of acoustic vowel targets are demonstrated during speech production and imitation and suggest that speech production continuously draws on perceptual learning from the external speech environment. Expand
Neural correlates of phonetic convergence and speech imitation
TLDR
Examination of neural correlates of phonetic convergence and deliberate imitation supports the fact that both deliberate and unconscious imitations are based on similar neural mechanisms and networks, involving regions of the dorsal stream, during both perception and production steps of the imitation process. Expand
ERP correlates of language-specific processing of auditory pitch feedback during self-vocalization
TLDR
The findings demonstrate that neural processing of auditory pitch feedback in vocal motor control is subject to language-dependent neural plasticity, suggesting that cortical mechanisms of auditory-vocal integration can be shaped by tone language experience. Expand

Auditory–motor integration during fast repetition: The neuronal correlates of shadowing
This fMRI study examined which structures of a proposed dorsal stream system are involved in the auditory-motor integration during fast overt repetition. We used a shadowing task which requiresExpand
Phonological Abstraction in the Mental Lexicon
TLDR
A perceptual learning experiment provides evidence that the mental lexicon cannot consist solely of detailed acoustic traces of recognition episodes, and that lexical processing involves sublexical phonological abstraction, not only accumulation of acoustic episodes. Expand
Acute conduction aphasia: An analysis of 20 cases
TLDR
Verbal-auditory short-term memory was reduced in all patients except one and seems to play a role in associated cognitive deficits, such as impaired syntactic comprehension or reduced mental arithmetics. Expand
Imitation during phoneme production
TLDR
The data suggest that both features of the lip kinematics and of the voice spectra tend to be automatically imitated when repeating a string-of-phonemes presented by a visible and/or audible speaking interlocutor. Expand
Echoes of echoes? An episodic theory of lexical access.
TLDR
An episodic model tested against speech production data from a word-shadowing task predicted the shadowing-response-time patterns, and it correctly predicted a tendency for shadowers to spontaneously imitate the acoustic patterns of words and nonwords. Expand
Rapid access to speech gestures in perception: Evidence from choice and simple response time tasks.
TLDR
The findings imply rapid access to articulatory speech information in the choice task, and are interpreted as evidence that listeners rapidly extract information about speakers' articulatory gestures. Expand
The Influence of Ambient Speech on Adult Speech Productions through Unintentional Imitation
TLDR
The results suggest that: (i) imitation occursautomatically and unintentionally, (ii) the modified realisations leave a memorytrace, in which case the mechanism may be better defined as ‘mimesis’ than as‘imitation’. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that talkers in conversational settings are susceptible to phonetic convergence, which can mark nonlinguistic functions in social discourse and can form the basis for phenomena such as accent change and dialect formation. Expand

Imitation, or performing an act after perceiving it, has attracted the attention of researchers from many different disciplines. The present chapter addresses possible common neurocognitiveExpand
Imitation in shadowing words
TLDR
Imitation of shadowed words was evaluated using Goldinger’s (1998) AXB paradigm and revealedshadowed words to be better imitations of target tokens than baseline, without an influence of AXB presentation order. Expand
