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, July 1 - September 30, 1976.
Haskins Labs., New Haven, CT.
This report, covering the period in 1976 from July 1 through September 30, is one of a regular series on the status and progress of speech research. Manuscript topics are: stop-consonant recognition--release bursts and formant transitions as functionally equivalent, context-dependent cues; modes of perceiving; discrimination of intensity differences carried on formant transitions varying in extent and duration; discrimination functions predicted from categories in speech and music; right-ear advantage for musical stimuli differing in rise time; dichotic competition of sounds--the role of acoustic stimulus structure; distance measures for speech recognition--psychological and instrumental; laryngeal timing in consonant distinctions; phonetic aspects of time and timing; static and dynamic acoustic cues in distinctive tones; the effects of selective adaptation on voicing in Thai and English; perception of nonspeech by infants; categorical perception along an oral-nasal continuum; stop-voicing production--natural outputs and synthesized inputs; and shifts in vowel perception as a function of speaking rate.
