It is common in linguistic analysis to treat words as strings of speech segments that are believed to be transduced from the speech signal. However, there are notable shortcomings with this approach, especially concerning word comparison. Principally, comparing speech segment strings does not...
Spoken language manifests itself as change over time in various acoustic dimensions. While it seems clear that acoustic-phonetic information in the speech signal is key to language processing, little is currently known about which specific types of acoustic information are relatively...
Research on speech perception and lexical access often uses the activation and competition metaphor to describe the process of spoken word recognition. One way of expressing competition associated with a given word is its phonological neighborhood density, which is a calculation of similarity....
Perception and timing of acoustic distance
The notion of acoustic distance figures into many aspects of phonetics, including phonological neighborhoods. A measurement of word-level acoustic distance useful for cognitive modeling must account for two aspects of perception: listener sensitivity to acoustic differences and the duration...
bBoiA sizable number of phonetic and psycholinguistic experiments have been conducted to investigate the recognition of real words. From this work, researchers have found that various characteristics of lexical items affect the recognition process, such as lexical frequency, phonotactic...
Using phonological neighborhood density has been a common method to quantify lexical competition. It is useful and convenient but has shortcomings that are worth reconsidering. The present study quantifies the effects of lexical competition during spoken word recognition using acoustic distance...
