The response to sudden change in vocal tract resistance during stop consonant production
- Visual Influences on Perception of Speech and Nonspeech Vocal-Tract Events. Brancazio, Lawrence; Best, Catherine T.; Fowler, Carol A. // Language & Speech;Mar2006, Vol. 49 Issue 1, p21
We report four experiments designed to determine whether visual information affects judgments of acoustically-specified nonspeech events as well as speech events (the "McGurk effect"). Previous findings have shown only weak McGurk effects for nonspeech stimuli, whereas strong effects are found...
- Vocal tract area function estimation from midsagittal dimensions with CT scans and a vocal tract... Perrier, P.; Boe, L. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Feb92, Vol. 35 Issue 1, p53
Presents a model which shows the generation of area functions from measurements of the sagittal section, which is an important step in the study of the relation between vocal tract geometry and speech acoustics. The model is based on analysis ofa vocal tract cast for large sagittal dimensions...
- SPEECH Dances of the Vocal Tract. Goldstein, Louis; Rubin, Philip // Odyssey;Jan2007, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p14
The article discusses the role of vocal tract in the production of speech.
- An Auditory-Feedback-Based Neural Network Model of Speech Production That Is Robust to Developmental Changes in the Size and Shape of the Articulatory System. Callan, Daniel E.; Kent, Ray D.; Guenther, Frank H.; Vorperian, Houri K. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun2000, Vol. 43 Issue 3, p721
The purpose of this article is to demonstrate that self-produced auditory feedback is sufficient to train a mapping between auditory target space and articulator space under conditions in which the structures of speech production are undergoing considerable developmental restructuring. One...
- How children learn to organize their speech gestures: Further evidence from fricative-vowel... Nittrouer, Susan; Studdert-Kennedy, Michael // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Apr96, Vol. 39 Issue 2, p379
Studies the production of fricative-vowel syllables in children's speech. Difference in the overall spectrum between fricatives in children's and adult's speech; Role of age-related difference in vocal-tract geometry on age-related difference in vowel effects on fricative noise; Difference...
- Modified Mfcc for Speaker Recognition. Vaskas, Alireza Salahshour; Esfandiyari, Ahmad; Shamshirband, Shahaboddin // Australian Journal of Basic & Applied Sciences;2010, Vol. 4 Issue 9, p4357
In this research is described a method for feature extraction from the signal that is based on the MFCC analysis. The researchers discover that the major fraction of the speech information is in the low frequency and the information in high frequency is very rubbish. So they make a method that...
- A Note on Vowel Centralization in Stuttering and Nonstuttering Individuals. Blomgren, Michael; Robb, Michael // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct1998, Vol. 41 Issue 5, p1042
Focuses on the vocal tract articulation characterizing fluent speech productions and possible treatment implications for persons who stutter. Recording procedure and speech material; Acoustic analysis; Calculation of vowel.
- Acoustic and Perceptual Consequences of Articulatory Rate Change in Parkinson Disease. McRae, Paul A.; Tjaden, Kris; Schoonings, Barbra // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Feb2002, Vol. 45 Issue 1, p35
This study sought to characterize the relationship among voluntary rate modification, vocal tract acoustic output, and perceptual impressions of speech for individuals with idiopathic Parkinson disease (PD). Healthy control speakers were studied for comparison purposes. Four research questions...
- false vocal cord. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p297
An encyclopedia entry for "false vocal cord" is presented. It refers to one of the two folds of tissue in the larynx that can be found above the true vocal cords but which are not involved in speech production.
