Haskins Labs., New Haven, CT.
Research reports on the nature of speech, instrumentation for the investigation of speech, and practical applications of research are included in this status report for the January 1 - March 31, 1979 period. The reports deal with the following topics: an articulatory synthesizer for perceptual research; the perception of an oral-nasal continuum generated by articulatory synthesis; coarticulation and theories of extrinsic timing; orthography and the beginning reader; aspiration amplitude as a voicing cue for syllable-initial stop consonants presented monaurally and in dichotic competition; stop-consonant place perception with single-formant stimuli; vowel duration change and its underlying physiological mechanisms; the psycholinguistic basis of linguistic awareness; some effects of later-occurring information on the perception of stop-consonant and semivowel; perceptual equivalence of two acoustic cues for stop-consonant manner; syllabic coding and reading ability in word recognition; acoustic cues for a fricative-affricate contrast in word-final position; apprehending spelling patterns for vowels (a developmental study); perceptual centers in speech production and perception; and the influence of vocalic environment on perception of silence in speech.
