ABSTRACT
Studies the perception of stop consonants in a constant neutral [s-l] context. Truncated natural [p], [t], and [k] release bursts at two intensities that were preceded by variable silent closure intervals; Role of burst amplitude as a cue for both stop manner and place; Emergence of the silent closure interval as the primary place cue; Perceptual effects that probably reflect listeners' tacit knowledge of systematic acoustic differences in natural speech.

    Numerous findings suggest that non-native speech perception undergoes dramatic changes before the infant's first birthday. Yet the nature and cause of these changes remain uncertain. We evaluated the predictions of several theoretical accounts of developmental change in infants' perception of...

In Experiment 1, young adults with normal hearing completed an auditory lexical decision task with words...

    Purpose: The goal of this experiment was to determine whether selective slowing of speech segments improves recognition performance by young and elderly listeners. The hypotheses were (a) the benefits of time expansion occur for rapid speech but not for natural-rate speech, (b) selective time...
