  • Written by specialists in psycholinguistics, phonetics, speech development, speech perception and speech technology, this volume presents experimental and modeling studies that provide the reader with a deep understanding of interspeaker variability and its role in speech processing, speech development, and interspeaker interactions. (
  • This dissertation aims to explore the role of articulatory coproduction in the domains of speech production, spoken word recognition, and second language acquisition, by combining insights and methods from phonetics and psycholinguistics. (
  • In a new study, published in PLoS ONE on November 11, 2009, Holger Mitterer (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics) and James McQueen (MPI and Radboud University Nijmegen) show how you can improve your second-language listening ability by watching the movie with subtitles. (
  • It presents how a child begins to process basic linguistic units, including phonological features, phonemes, and syllables during the auditory input and articulatory output of spoken language. (
  • She works on questions of phonological and morphological representations in speech perception, as well as language processing in deaf adults and children with cochlear implants. (
  • Phonological and morphological structures in speech perception, auditory linguistic processing in children with cochlear implants, individual differences in lexical processing in auditory speech perception. (
  • The children were tested with a widespread set of diagnostic tools including measures of speech intelligibility (clarity), intelligence, phonological (speech sound) processing, memory, and others. (
  • Phonetic and phonological theory is investigated through speech perception studies and the analysis of speech production using articulatory and acoustic techniques. (
  • Our findings suggest that improved speech in noise perception in musicians relies on stronger recruitment of, finer phonological representations in, and stronger functional connectivity between auditory and frontal speech motor cortices in both hemispheres, regions involved in bottom-up spectrotemporal analyses and top-down articulatory prediction and sensorimotor integration, respectively. (
  • Thus, posterior nodes of the dorsal speech pathway involved in spectrotemporal analysis of auditory signals, phonological processing, and sensorimotor interface have been clearly implicated in categorical perception of speech. (
  • His research is concerned with the cognitive organization of multiple phonological systems, especially the cross-language interactions that occur during second-language learning and first-language attrition. (
  • The project explores effects of phonetic and acoustic variability in the speech input on the basis of which phonological categories in early language acquisition are established. (
  • In a third research component, we are exploring the hypothesis that phonological categories in natural speech observe specific relations of covariability among the acoustic cues that express the phonological contrasts in these categories. (
  • Research and the approach of second language phonology, the causes for fossilisation of the L2 pronunciation, and two models for L2 phonological acquisition based on the interaction of transfer and developmental factors are discussed. (
  • These categorical perception anomalies might be at the origin of dyslexia, by hampering the set up of grapheme-phoneme correspondences, but they might also be the consequence of poor reading skills, as literacy probably contributes to stabilizing phonological categories. (
  • Speech perception deficits in poor readers: Auditory processing or phonological coding? (
  • During his visit to Bristol Dr. Thomson will be advising on the set-up of a state-of-the-art 'Applied Second Language Speech Lab', and presenting his research on using speech analysis software to examine the effects of acoustic or temporal (fluency) features on the intelligibility of non-native speech, and on phonological working memory capacity and the development of second language speech perception. (

  • Two clinical and phonological acquisition researchers made perception judgments about speech of the children in terms of voiced and voiceless constraint. (
  • In addition, although the dyslexic subjects were able to label and discriminate the synthetic speech continua, they did not necessarily use the acoustic cues in the same manner as normal readers, and their overall performance was generally less accurate. (
  • After processing the initial auditory signal, speech sounds are further processed to extract acoustic cues and phonetic information. (
  • Acoustic cues are sensory cues contained in the speech sound signal which are used in speech perception to differentiate speech sounds belonging to different phonetic categories. (
  • For example, one of the most studied cues in speech is voice onset time or VOT. (
  • The speech system must also combine these cues to determine the category of a specific speech sound. (
  • It is not easy to identify what acoustic cues listeners are sensitive to when perceiving a particular speech sound: At first glance, the solution to the problem of how we perceive speech seems deceptively simple. (
  • If a specific aspect of the acoustic waveform indicated one linguistic unit, a series of tests using speech synthesizers would be sufficient to determine such a cue or cues. (
  • Effects of the distribution of cues on infants' perception of speech sounds. (
  • These procedures have also enabled researchers to isolate and identify specific components of the AER across hemispheres which appear to reflect responses to specific language-relevant acoustic and phonetic cues. (
  • The localization of the sound source in busy environments prompts individuals to turn their face to the source so as to increase their use of visual cues and as such enhance their speech-in-noise perception. (
  • These spatial cues and spectral data are used for auditory streaming and contribute to improvement in speech perception. (
  • The experiments investigate whether cues from prior context - in particular the speech rate of preceding words - influences how people perceive the critical word. (
  • Auditory-visual facilitation was quantified with response time and accuracy measures and the N1/P2 ERP waveform response as a function of changes in audibility (manipulation of the acoustic environment by testing a range of signal-to-noise ratios) and content of optic cue (manipulation of the types of cues available, e.g., speech, nonspeech-static, or non-speech-dynamic cues). (
  • ERP measures showed effects of reduced audibility (slower latency, decreased amplitude) for both types of facial motion, i.e., speech and non-speech dynamic facial optic cues, compared to measures in quiet conditions. (

  • It is about how we recognize speech sounds and how we use this information to understand spoken language.Researchers have studied how infants learn speech. (

  • As seen in the figure, infants discriminate phonetic contrasts of all languages until they are 5-months old. (
  • When infants are 11 months old, the consonant perception in foreign language declines and there is an increase in their native language consonant perception. (
  • There has been evidence indicating that newborn infants have had exposure to at least some characteristics of native language while still in the womb, a procedure that would allow developmentalists to test neonates and understand how this is possible. (
  • There are different procedures that can be used for testing speech perception capabilities in young infants, and what they can perceive at very young age. (
  • Initially, the theory was associationist: infants mimic the speech they hear and that this leads to behavioristic associations between articulation and its sensory consequences. (
  • This aspect of the theory was dropped, however, with the discovery that prelinguistic infants could already detect most of the phonetic contrasts used to separate different speech sounds. (
  • First, we discuss differences in the mechanism of learning and plasticity during and after a sensitive period by examining how language exposure versus training forms language-specific phonetic representations in infants and adult L2 learners, respectively. (
  • This research has demonstrated that infants are sensitive to many fine-grained differences in the acoustic properties of speech utterances. (
  • Furthermore, these empirical findings have led investigators to theorize about how the infants internally process and represent speech stimuli. (

  • All human languages, even spontaneous ones, show many common principles of language acquisition as well as rules of grammar. (
  • This suggests that humans identify speech using categorical perception, and thus that a specialized module, such as that proposed by the motor theory of speech perception, may be on the right track. (
  • Although much effort has been directed toward understanding the neural basis of speech processing, the neural processes involved in the categorical perception of speech have been relatively less studied, and many questions remain open. (
  • In this functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study, we probed the cortical regions mediating categorical speech perception using an advanced brain-mapping technique, whole-brain multivariate pattern-based analysis (MVPA). (
  • The consistent MVPA findings from two independent datasets strongly indicate that Broca's area participates in categorical speech perception, with a possible role of translating speech signals into articulatory codes. (
  • The supramarginal gyrus (SMG) has also been implicated in categorical speech perception. (
  • Furthermore, a recent meta-analysis revealed that the SMG and angular gyrus were consistently activated in fMRI studies of categorical speech perception ( Turkeltaub and Coslett, 2010 ). (

  • Identification and discrimination responses were collected for a /ba-da/ synthetic place-of-articulation continuum and between-group differences in both categorical perception and in the precision of the categorical boundary were examined. (
  • The results showed that illiterate vs. literate people did not differ in categorical perception, thereby suggesting that the categorical perception anomalies displayed by dyslexics are indeed a cause rather than a consequence of their reading problems. (
  • However, illiterate people displayed a less precise categorical boundary and a stronger lexical bias, both also associated with dyslexia, which might, therefore, be a specific consequence of written language deprivation or impairment. (

  • Brain & Language , 150, 90-102. (
  • Although we have long known where language is processed in the brain ( 1 ⇓ - 3 ), we still know almost nothing about how neural circuits extract and represent the meaning of a sentence. (
  • Indeed, perception and brain functions were held by Gestaltists to be formally identical (or isomorphic), so much so that to study perception is to study the brain. (
  • Nowadays, scientists and doctors are discovering the important brain zones involved in the processing of language information. (
  • The variety of such brain zones clearly shows that the language processing is a very complex task. (
  • This brain plasticity is the motor drive of the children capability of "cracking the speech code" of a language. (
  • It has been clearly demonstrated that there are anatomical brain differences between fast and slow learners of foreign languages. (
  • By analyzing a group of people having a homogenous language background, scientists found that differences in specific brain regions can predict the capacity of a person to learn a second language. (
  • Native and second language brain zones: how do they work and where are they located? (
  • The superior temporal gyrus is an important brain region involved in language learning. (

  • Brain potentials to native phoneme discrimination reveal the origin of individual differences in learning the sounds of a second language. (
  • found that compared to healthy volunteers, people with amusia showed less functional connectivity between left hemisphere brain regions that process language and right hemisphere regions that process pitch. (
  • In other words, because pitch is a less reliable source of information for people with amusia, they recruit pitch-related brain regions less when processing speech. (
  • Reorganization of eloquent cortex enables rescue of language functions in patients who sustain brain injury. (
  • I then stayed on at FU Berlin to complete my PhD here in the Brain Language Lab. (
  • These innate, language-specific, information processing mechanisms may be encapsulated in language module of the brain. (
  • In our study, we investigated how different lengths of time-reversed segments in speech influenced comprehension in ten native German speakers and ten participants who had acquired German as a second language. (
  • Assessments of JA skills, SP skills, mother-child interactions, and language development were collected at 4 time points: pre- and postintervention and 6 and 12 months postintervention by independent testers. (
  • As they are 6 months old, they are introduced to statistical learning (distributional frequencies) and they have preference to language-specific perception for vowels. (
  • The nature of the sounds made at this stage is not fully speech-like, though there are open mouth noises like vowels, and an occasional "closure" akin to a consonant, but without the full properties that normally make a syllable out of the two. (
  • It may explain some unusual and sometimes isolated deficits or on the contrary, preserved language features seen in these epilepsy syndromes. (
  • In a similar vein, adult patients with aphasia showed unisensory deficits but still integrated audiovisual speech information (Andersen and Starrfelt, 2015). (

  • There are increasing reports that individual variation in behavioral and neurophysiological measures of infant speech processing predicts later language outcomes, and specifically concurrent or subsequent vocabulary size. (
  • One important factor that causes variation is differing speech rate. (
  • Inter-individual variation in speech is a topic of increasing interest both in human sciences and speech technology. (
  • Altieri and Hudock (2014) report variation in reaction time and accuracy benefits for audiovisual speech in hearing-impaired observers, emphasizing the importance of individual differences in integration. (
  • Use of the term apraxia of speech implies a shared core of speech and prosody features, regardless of time of onset, whether congenital or acquired, or specific etiology. (
  • These fluctuations, known as prosody, add emotion to speech and denote punctuation. (
  • Using a speech synthesizer, speech sounds can be varied in place of articulation along a continuum from /bɑ/ to /dɑ/ to /ɡɑ/, or in voice onset time on a continuum from /dɑ/ to /tɑ/ (for example). (
  • Perturbations of the auditory speech feedback typically induce changes in articulation that compensate for the disturbance. (
  • Part I presents prepared single-mouth filtration tests basing on the ones published in 1993 by Pruszewicz and the, mentioned in 1993 [ Ref. 8] , new articulation lists for the Polish language, so-called NLA-93. (
  • Children with an Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) have difficulty interpreting the sounds around them, while those with a Specific Language Impairment (SLI) have difficulty learning language. (
  • 2014) report that children with specific language impairment recognized visual and auditory speech less accurately than their controls, affecting audiovisual speech perception, while audiovisual integration per se seemed unimpaired. (

  • The purpose of the present study was twofold: 1) to compare the hierarchy of perceived and produced significant speech pattern contrasts in children with cochlear implants, and 2) to compare this hierarchy to developmental data of children with normal hearing. (
  • In this short course you will explore the possibility that children might acquire written language in a way that is similar to how they acquire spoken language-without instruction. (
  • Finally, although having an accent does not normally impede communication, when it is very strong, it may do so, even though the person may be fluent in the language being spoken. (
  • The motor theory of speech perception is the hypothesis that people perceive spoken words by identifying the vocal tract gestures with which they are pronounced rather than by identifying the sound patterns that speech generates. (
  • Human spoken language makes use of the ability of almost all people in a given society to dynamically modulate certain parameters of the laryngeal voice source in a consistent manner. (
  • The pronunciation of a word in continuous speech is often reduced, different from when it is spoken in isolation. (
  • Speech reduction reflects a fundamental property of spoken language-the movements of articulators can overlap in time, also known as coarticulation. (
  • Children who lose hearing capacity will suffer a decline in spoken language because they cannot hear themselves and lose an important auditory feedback. (
  • Listeners can use their knowledge about how words normally sound to adjust the way they perceive speech that is spoken in an unfamiliar way. (
  • Spoken language is colored by fluctuations in pitch and rhythm. (
  • Rather than equating language with 'speech' or 'communication', we propose that language is best described as a biologically determined computational cognitive mechanism that yields an unbounded array of hierarchically structured expressions. (
  • For children beginning treatment with the lowest language levels, the JA intervention improved language outcome significantly more than did the SP or control interventions. (

  • Critically, the difference in temporal processing between perceiving native vs. non-native language tends to disappear as the amount of experience with the non-native language increases. (
  • We propose that this modulation of multisensory temporal processing as a function of prior experience is a consequence of the constraining role that visual information plays in the temporal alignment of audiovisual speech signals. (
  • This auditory-motor integration is thought to be achieved along a dorsal stream speech network, running from primary auditory cortex via posterior superior temporal gyrus (STG) and the inferior parietal lobule to the posterior frontal lobe ( Hickok and Poeppel, 2007 ). (
  • An impairment of temporal-order perception can be simulated by time reversing segments of the speech signal. (
  • Since auditory perception is known to be lateralized, with right-lateralized analysis of spectral features and left-lateralized processing of temporal features, it is unclear whether the observed right-lateralization of auditory speech feedback processing reflects a preference for speech feedback control or for spectral processing in general. (
  • Here we use a behavioral speech adaptation experiment with dichotically presented altered auditory feedback and an analogous fMRI experiment with binaurally presented altered feedback to confirm a right hemisphere preference for spectral feedback control and to reveal a left hemisphere preference for temporal feedback control during speaking. (
  • Temporal perturbations that prolong or compress speech locally change the length of phonemes and their transitions. (

  • Although listeners perceive speech as a stream of discrete units[citation needed] (phonemes, syllables, and words), this linearity is difficult to see in the physical speech signal (see Figure 2 for an example). (
  • Those with a condition called congenital amusia, for example, struggle to perceive pitch, but they can compensate for this difficulty by placing greater emphasis on other aspects of speech. (
