Pisoni, David B.; And Others
Summarizing research activities from January 1983 to December 1983, this is the ninth annual report of research on speech perception, analysis and synthesis conducted in the Speech Research Laboratory of the Department of Psychology at Indiana University. The report includes extended manuscripts, short reports, and progress reports. The report contains the following 17 articles: "Contextual Effects on the Consonant/Vowel Ratio in Speech Production" (P. A. Luce and J. Charles-Luce); "Some Effects of Training on the Perception of Synthetic Speech" (E. C. Schwab and others); "Vowel Categorization by Three-Year-Old Children" (C. A. Kubaska and R. N. Aslin); "Effects of Speech Rate and Pitch Contour on the Perception of Synthetic Speech" (L. M. Slowiaczek and H. C. Nusbaum);"Recognition of Speech Spectrograms" (B. G. Greene and others); "Developmental Trends in the Classification and Perceived Similarity of Spoken Syllables" (A. C. Walley and others); "Speech Perception: Some New Directions in Research and Theory" (D. B. Pisoni); "Linguistic Experience and Infant Speech Perceptions: A Re-examination of Eilers, Gavin and Oller (1982)" (P. W. Jusczyk and others); "Contextual Variability and the Problem of Acoustic-Phonetic Invariance in Speech" (D. B. Pisoni); "Converging Approaches Towards Establishing Invariant Acoustic Correlates of Stop Consonants" (D. Kewley-Port); "Identification of Speech Spectrograms: Comparisons of Naive and Trained Observers" (B. G. Greene and others); "Perceptual Evaluation of Synthetic Speech: Some Constraints on the Use of Voice Response Systems" (H. C. Nusbaum and others); "Capacity-Demanding Encoding of Synthetic Speech in Serial-Ordered Recall" (P. A. Luce and D. B. Pisoni); "The Representation of Synthetic Speech in Precategorical Acoustic Storage" (P. A. Luce and D. B. Pisoni); "The Role of Fundamental Frequency and Duration in the Perception of Clause Boundaries: Evidence from a Speeded Verification Task" (P. A. Luce and J. Charles-Luce); "Perception of Synthetic Speech by Children" (B. G. Greene); and "Perceptual Evaluation of Synthetic Speech: Some Considerations of the User/System Interface" (D. B.
