    To understand the clinical aspects of speech rate control, a clearer picture is needed of how orofacial structures are coordinated across variations in speech rate. To address this problem, patterns of orofacial tangential velocity or speed were analyzed in a group of 9 normal speakers as they...

    Inter- and intratalker variation in the production of lexical tones may contribute to acoustic overlap among tone categories. The present study investigated whether such category overlap gives rise to perceptual ambiguity and, if so, whether listeners are able to reduce this ambiguity using...

    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...
