An Acoustic Analysis of the Development of CV Coarticulation: A Case Study
- Obtaining Phonetic Transcriptions: A Comparison between Expert Listeners and a Continuous Speech Recognizer*. Wester, Mirjam; Kessens, Judith M.; Cucchiarini, Catia; Strik, Helmer // Language & Speech;Sep2001, Vol. 44 Issue 3, p377
In this article, we address the issue of using a continuous speech recognition tool to obtain phonetic or phonological representations of speech. Two experiments were carried out in which the performance of a continuous speech recognizer (CSR) was compared to the performance of expert listeners...
- A STUDY OF NONSENSE SYLIABLES SPOKEN BY TWO LANGUAGE GROUPS IN VARYING CONDITIONS OF SIDETONE AND READING RATE. Singh, Sadanand; Black, John W. // Language & Speech;Oct-Dec65, Vol. 8 Issue 4, p208
The article cites a study which compares nonsense syllables spoken by English-speaking and Hindi speaking groups under varying conditions of sidetone, listening, and rates of reading. Results of the study indicated that the two language groups did not statistically show differences in the mean...
- The Effects of a Flattened Fundamental Frequency on Intelligibility at the Sentence Level. Laures, Jacqueline S.; Weismer, Gary // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct1999, Vol. 42 Issue 5, p1148
Evaluates the effect of a flattened fundamental frequency contour on sentence intelligibility. Implications of monotonic pitch on sentence-level speech intelligibility produced by normal speakers; Importance of the role of prosody in the speech intelligibility deficit of dysarthria;...
- JOSHUA STEELE AND THE MELODY OF SPEECH. Alkon, Paul K. // Language & Speech;Jul-Sep59, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p154
Examines the contributions made by Joshua Steele on the system for transcribing the suprasegmental aspects of speech. Features of the system developed by Steele; Advantages of the transcribing process; Defects observed on the system.
- SOCIAL CLASS, SEX AND LINGUISTIC CODING. Poole, Millicent E. // Language & Speech;Jan-Mar79, Vol. 22 Issue 1, p49
Examines the linguistic coding orientation of middle-class and working-class male and female adolescents. Differences in linguistic coding behavior across the dimensions of social class and sex; Assessment of verbatim transcripts; Indications of tentativeness and hesitation in speech planning.
- Computerized Lab for Phonemic Transcription. Uffen, Ellen // ASHA Leader;11/14/2000, Vol. 5 Issue 22, p11
Focuses on the article `Development of a Computer-Aided Phonetic Transcription Laboratory,' which appeared in the August 2000 issue of the `American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology.'
- A Dynamic Alignment Algorithm for Imperfect Speech and Transcript. Ye Tao; Xueqing Li; Bian Wu // Computer Science & Information Systems;2010, Vol. 7 Issue 1, p75
The article presents a study which describes a novel alignment algorithm for imperfect speech and transcript. It seeks to detect the insertion and deletion errors at sentence/paragraph level. Experimental results determined an increase in correct matching ratio particularly in speech and...
- Transcribing the Speech of Children With Cochlear Implants: Clinical Application of Narrow Phonetic Transcriptions. Teoh, Amy P.; Chin, Steven B. // American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology;Nov2009, Vol. 18 Issue 4, p388
Purpose: The phonological systems of children with cochlear implants may include segment inventories that contain both target and nontarget speech sounds. These children may not consistently follow phonological rules of the target language. These issues present a challenge for the clinical...
- Eliminating the Segmental Tier: Evidence from Speech Errors. Brown, J. C. // Journal of Psycholinguistic Research;Mar2004, Vol. 33 Issue 2, p97
The dominant viewpoint regarding phonologically driven speech errors is that segments are the units responsible behind the errors. The goal of this paper is to illustrate the point that other potential candidates for explaining these speech errors, which have gone largely unnoticed, provide a...
