  • A preliminary approach to phonological phrase in Spanish

    Although the prosodic hierarchy has been well established in phonological theory for decades, little empirical work on its higher constituents has been done on Spanish. This study examines two well-known phonological processes in Spanish (spirantization of voiced plosives and fricative sibilant voicing in coda position) as possible parameters in the delimitation of phonological phrases. The data analyzed have been gathered from two native Spanish speakers from the Central Peninsular varie...

    The sociophonetics of rhotic variation in Sicilian dialects and Sicilian Italian: corpus, methodology and first results

    SoPhISM (The SocioPhonetics of verbal Interaction: Sicilian Multimodal corpus) is an acoustic and articulatory sociophonetic corpus focused on whithin-speaker variation as a function of stylistic/communicative factors. The corpus is particularly intended for the study of rhotics as a sociolinguistic variable in the production of Sicilian speakers. Rhotics are analyzed according to the distinction between single-phase and multiple-phase rhotics along with the presence of constriction and apert...

    Automatic speaker recognition of spanish siblings: (monozygotic and dizygotic) twins and non-twin brothers

    The performance of the automatic speaker recognition (ASR) system BatvoxTM (Version 4.1) has been tested with a male population of 24 monozygotic (MZ) twins, 10 dizygotic (DZ) twins, 8 non-twin siblings and 12 unrelated speakers (aged 18–52 with Standard Peninsular Spanish as their mother tongue). Since the cepstral features in which this ASR system is based depend largely on anatomical–physiological foundations, we hypothesized that such features ought to be gene-dependent. Therefore, higher...

    Listeners may rely on intonation to distinguish languages of different rhythm classes

    Previous research argued that listeners can distinguish between languages of different rhythm class but not of the same class (class discrimination hypothesis). In the present research we tested the role of duration and pitch cues (intonation) in this process. In Experiment I we tested whether we could replicate previous findings on listeners’ language discrimination ability with native Swiss German listeners. Results showed that the discrimination of English and Japanese based on durational ...

    An attribute detection based approach to automatic speech processing

    State-of-the-art automatic speech and speaker recognition systems are often built with a pattern matching framework that has proven to achieve low recognition error rates for a variety of resource-rich tasks when the volume of speech and text examples to build statistical acoustic and language models is plentiful, and the speaker, acoustics and language conditions follow a rigid protocol. However, because of the “blackbox” top-down knowledge integration approach, such systems cannot easily le...
