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 April 1-June 30, 1980, period. The reports deal with the following topics: (1) the perceptual equivalent of two acoustic cues for a speech contrast is specific to phonetic perception; (2) duplex perception of acoustic patterns as speech and nonspeech; (3) evidence for phonetic processing of cues to place of articulation; (4) some articulatory correlates of perceptual isochrony; (5) effects of utterance continuity on phonetic judgments; (6) laryngeal adjustments in stuttering; (7) letter detection errors on word endings; (8) speaking rate, syllable stress, and vowel identity; (9) sonority and syllabicity as acoustic correlates of perception; (10) influence of vocalic context on perception of the "sh"/"s" distinction; (11) the role of auditory memory in speech perception and discrimination; (12) talker-independent information for vowel identity; (13) context-conditioned specification of vowel identity; and (14) influence of preceding fricative on stop consonant perception.
