Status Report on Speech Research: A Report on the Status and Progress of Studies on the Nature of Speech, Instrumentation for Its Investigation, and Practical Applications, October 1 - December 31, 1975.
Haskins Labs., New Haven, CT.
This report, covering the period from October 1 to January 31, 1975, is one of a regular series on the status and progress of studies on the nature of speech, instrumentation for its investigation, and practical applications. The manuscripts in this report discuss such topics as the complexity of a motor theory of speech perception, a systems approach to studying the cerebral hemispheres, the auditory and linguistic processes in speech perception, the rate at which initial phonemes are detected in spoken words and spoken nonwords, detecting nasals in continuous speech, developing a digital pattern playback for the analysis and manipulation of speech signals, the value of the voice onset time as the physical basis for separating homorganic stop categories across a variety of languages, the coarticulation tones among the Thai and using the tones as a reference system, the motor patterns that underlie articulator movements during the production of certain vowel-consonant-vowel syllables, and the findings from an ongoing study of the fricative /s/ as it is produced by normal speakers either as a single consonant or in cluster with other consonants.
