- Perception of 'Elliptical Speech' Following Cochlear Implantation: Use of Broad Phonetic Categories in Speech Perception. Herman, Rebecca; Pisoni, David B. // Volta Review;Fall2000, Vol. 102 Issue 4, p321
This study investigated the perception of elliptical speech (Miller & Nicely, 1955) in an adult cochlear implant patient. A group of 20 adult listeners with normal hearing were used for comparison. Two experiments were conducted using sets of meaningful and anomalous English sentences. Two...
