Psy of Language-CH 4

Perception of Language

Stress the emphasis given to syllables in a sentence
suprasegmentals prosodic factors such as stress, intonation and rate
voicing concerns whether the vocal cords are together or separated when the lung air travels over them
Dual-route model we have two different ways of converting print to speech
speaker normalization listeners use the pitch of the speech signal as a cue for vocal tract size and make perceptual adjustments on this basis
TRACE model challenges the assumption, found in the modularity view, that phonemic processing is unaffected by higher levels of processing
coarticulation the phenomenon of producing more than one speech sound at a given time
The lack of invariances there is no one-to-one correspondence between acoustic cues and perceptual events
Formant transitions the large rises or drops in formant frequency that occur over short durations of time
Fixation the time that we spend at a given location between eye movements
