Studdert-Kennedy, Michael, Ed.; O'Brien, Nancy, Ed.
One in a series on the status and progress of studies on the nature of speech, instrumentation for its investigation, and practical research applications, this document contains 17 research reports. Topics discussed in the reports are as follows: (1) dynamic modeling of phonetic structure; (2) coarticulation as a component in articulatory description; (3) contextual effects on lingual-mandibular coordination; (4) the timing of articulatory gestures; (5) the onset of voicing in stuttered and fluent utterances; (6) phonetic information integrated across intervening nonlinguistic sounds; (7) parameters of spectral/temporal fusion in speech perception; (8) monitoring for vowels in isolation and in a consonantal context; (9) the perception of /l/ and /r/ by native speakers of Japanese; (10) a theoretical note on speech timing; (11) reconciling monophthongal vowel percepts and continuously varying F patterns; (12) synergies--stabilities, instabilities, and modes; (13) repetition and comprehension of spoken sentences by reading disabled children; (14) spelling proficiency and sensitivity to word structure; (15) effects of phonological ambiguity on beginning readers of Serbo-Croatian; (16) verticality unparalleled; and (17) reiterant speech production.
