This study illustrates how cluster analysis can be applied to vocabulary assessment to classify students into groups with similar profiles of vocabulary knowledge so that vocabulary instruction can be designed and targeted more precisely, especially in light of the multi-dimensional nature of the...
Measures of vowel overlap explore the acoustic similarity between proposed and existing vowel categories. They typically compare F1 and F2, and sometimes duration. In the present study, we investigate four methods of quantifying vowel overlap: the spectral overlap assessment metric (Wassink,...
The overlap of vowel categories is a fairly common linguistic phenomenon. But, it can be difficult to judge whether two supposedly distinct vowel categories have merged or not. One tool that a researcher may use is a quantification of the overlap based on acoustic properties of recorded vowel...
The present paper investigates the effect of different inputs on the accuracy of a forced alignment tool built using deep neural networks. Both raw audio samples and Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients were compared as network inputs. A set of experiments were performed using the TIMIT speech...
Poster for the paper "A comparison of input types to a deep neural network-based forced aligner," presented at Interspeech 2018. PAPER ABSTRACT: The present paper investigates the effect of different inputs on the accuracy of a forced alignment tool built using deep neural networks. Both raw...
Sitting, standing, and lying are common at-rest positions for humans and the verbs which refer to these positions can have a significant role to play in some languages in addition to the basic posture sense. The additional uses of these verbs include locational verbs not restricted to human...
Semantic prosody, or discourse prosody as it is also known, has come to be a familiar dimension of corpus-based lexicology (see Louw 1993, Stubbs 1995, Sinclair 1991, Partington 2004 for examples), though it is not without its critics (cf. Whitsitt 2005). As Whitsitt demonstrates through his...
In Section 1 I shall attempt to demonstrate how the need for a transformational rule, Tuni, uniting features under an NP node, rises in a transformational grammar containing a certain type of deletion transformation. Tuni will be investigated further (formally in Section 2, informally in Section...
A reassessment of the effects of neighborhood density and phonotactic probability on L2 English word learningDownload
Two groups of participants were formed according to their level of English: high and low proficiency. No differences were found between groups. Although visual preference for three competitors was different in four time windows, supporting the existence of lexical processing in cascade, a...
