Speech Research: A Report on the Status and Progress of Studies on the Nature of Speech, Instrumentation for Its Investigation, and Practical Applications, Status Report, July 1-December 31, 1982.
Haskins Labs., New Haven, CT.
Research reports on the nature of speech, instrumentation for the investigation of speech, and practical applications of speech research are presented in this status report. The 18 reports deal with a variety of topics, including the following: (1) cyclic production of vowels in sequences of monosyllabic stress feet; (2) differences between phonetic and auditory modes of perception; (3) duplex perception; (4) the kinematics of articulatory control as a function of stress and rate; (5) simultaneous neuromuscular, movement, and acoustic measures of speech articulation; (6) the relation between pronunciation and recognition of printed words in deep and shallow orthographies; (7) how subcategorical phonetic mismatches slow phonetic judgments; (8) motor memory; (9) inadequacies of the computer metaphor; (10) perceptual integration of spectral and temporal cues for stop consonant place of articulation; (11) acoustic laryngeal reaction time; (12) old problems and new directions in motor behavior; and (13) discovering the sound pattern of a language.
