Kjeldergaard, Paul M.; And Others
This report describes in two volumes the proceedings of a conference on the perception of language held at the University of Pittsburgh in January, 1968. The objectives of the conference, to present the particular research interests of the participants and to attempt to find points of concurrence in thinking through discussion of the conference topic, are emphasized throughout the nine articles and summary discussion. Major areas of psychological research which are presented as chapters in the proceedings include listening, reading, and grammatical structure; age changes in the selective perception of verbal materials; acoustic and grammatical features of spontaneous speech; the perception of time compressed speech; current approaches to syntax recognition; speech and body motion synchrony of the Speaker-Hearer; an analysis of laterality effects in speech perception; children's language development and articulatory breakdown; and perception of phonetic segments with evidence from phonology, acoustics, and psycholinguistics.
