Learning English-Chinese Bilingual Word Representations from Sentence-Aligned Parallel Corpus
Publication date: Available online 24 January 2019Source: Computer Speech & LanguageAuthor(s): An-Zi Yen, Hen-Hsen Huang, Hsin-Hsi ChenAbstractRepresentation of words in different languages is fundamental for various cross-lingual applications. In the past researches, there was an argument in using or not using word alignment in learning bilingual word representations. This paper presents a comprehensive empirical study on the uses of parallel corpus to learn the word representations in the embedding...

Influence of L2 English phonotactics in L1 Brazilian Portuguese illusory vowel perception
Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Phonetics, Volume 73Author(s): Jennifer Cabrelli, Alicia Luque, Irene Finestrat-MartínezAbstractThis study examines potential changes to L1 (Brazilian Portuguese, BP) perception of phonotactic structure as a function of L2 (English) experience. Syllables with a coda stop violate syllable structure constraints in BP, but are licit in English. As a result, BP monolinguals perceive an illusory /i/ after an illicit coda (e.g., ob/i/ter 'to obtain'). To understand...

Acoustic correlates of breathy sonorants in Marathi
Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Phonetics, Volume 73Author(s): Kelly Harper BerksonAbstractBreathy voiced sonorant consonants are typologically rare, more so than other non-modal sonorants (e.g. voiceless sonorants, which are widely attested in language families like Tibeto-Burman and Otomanguean). Similarly, they are more vulnerable to diachronic loss than voiceless sonorants (e.g. in Tibeto-Burman). The acoustic correlates of breathiness in sonorants have not been thoroughly investigated,...

What Makes the Cepstral Peak Prominence Different to Other Acoustic Correlates of Vocal Quality?
Cepstral peak prominence (CPP) has become the most successful individual acoustic measure for the objective measurement of vocal quality. It is also the strongest contributor to multidimensional available measures like Acoustic Voice Quality Index1 and Cepstral and Spectral Index of Dysphonia.2 However, a clear understanding of what CPP actually measures and where it can (and where it cannot) be expected to outperform other measures are issues which are still not clearly understood. Given the popularity...

How memory supports these alterations remain unclear. We asked healthy adults and patients with hippocampal amnesia to engage in a referential communication task. Previous work suggests that common ground can be encoded...

Application of a Landmark-Based Method for Acoustic Analysis of Dysphonic Speech
Speakers with dysphonia often report difficulty with maintaining intelligibility in noisy environments; however, there is no objective method for characterizing this difficulty. Landmark-based analysis is a linguistically-motived, knowledge-based speech analysis technique, which may serve as the basis of acoustic tool for describing the intelligibility deficit. As the first step toward development of such a tool, this study examined whether Landmark-based analysis could describe acoustic differences...

In Vivo Quantification of the Intraglottal Pressure: Modal Phonation and Voice Onset
Intraglottal pressure is the driving force of vocal fold vibration. Its time course during the open phase of the vibratory cycle is essential in the mechanics of phonation, but measuring it directly is difficult and may hinder spontaneous voicing. However, it can be computed from the in vivo measured transglottal flow and glottal area (hence the air particle velocity) on the basis of the Bernoulli energy law and the interaction with the inertance of the vocal tract. As to sustained modal phonation,...
