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, April 1-September 30, 1983.
Studdert-Kennedy, Michael, Ed.; O'Brien, Nancy, Ed.
Prepared as part of a regular series on the status and progress of studies on the nature of speech, instrumentation for its evaluation, and practical applications for speech research, this compilation contains 14 reports. Topics covered in the reports include the following: (1) phonetic coding and order memory in relation to reading proficiency, (2) the association between comprehension of spoken sentences and early reading ability, (3) oral and written language errors made by language disabled children, (4) perceiving phonetic events, (5) converging evidence in support of common dynamical principles for speech and movement coordination, (6) phase transitions and critical behavior in human bimanual coordination, (7) V-to-C coarticulation in Catalan vowel-consonant-vowel sequences, (8) intersections of tone and intonation in Thai, (9) simultaneous measurements of vowels produced by a hearing-impaired speaker, (10) the role of relative timing in speech, and (11) "chirp" identification in duplex perception.
