Attention to Facial Regions in Segmental and Prosodic Visual Speech Perception Tasks.
Lansing, Charissa R.; McConkie, George W.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v42 n3 p526-39 Jun 1999
Two experiments were conducted to test the hypothesis that visual information related to segmental versus prosodic aspects of speech is distributed differently on the face of the talker. Results indicate that information in the upper part of the talker's face is more critical for intonation pattern decisions than for decisions about word segments or primary sentence stress.
