Vocal Tract Length Normalization using a Gaussian Mixture Model Framework for Query-by-Example Spoken Term Detection
Publication date: Available online 23 March 2019Source: Computer Speech & LanguageAuthor(s): Maulik C. Madhavi, Hemant A. PatilAbstractA speech spectrum is known to be changed by the variations in the length of the vocal tract of a speaker. This is because of the fact that speech formants are inversely related to the vocal tract length (VTL). The process of compensating spectral variation due to the length of the vocal tract is known as Vocal Tract Length Normalization (VTLN). VTLN is a very...

A Model of Synesthetic Metaphor Interpretation Based on Cross-modality Similarity
Publication date: Available online 22 March 2019Source: Computer Speech & LanguageAuthor(s): Chang Su, Xiaomei Wang, Zita Wang, Yijiang ChenAbstractSynesthesia focuses on the cross-modality connections between different perceptual modalities (visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, and haptic). It presents the aesthetics and creativity of our language and cognitive systems. A model that automatically interprets synesthetic metaphor is proposed in this paper. The interpretation model can learn...

Rhotic vowel accuracy and error patterns in young children with and without Speech Sound Disorders
Publication date: Available online 22 March 2019Source: Journal of Communication DisordersAuthor(s): Hyunju Chung, Kathryn Farr, Karen E. PollockABSTRACTRhotic vowels are known to be difficult sounds for children to learn, but their acquisition has not been investigated in detail. This study examined rhotic vowel development, including accuracy and error patterns, in young children across age, diagnostic groups, and phonetic contexts. Participants included 34 children from 2 to 6 years of age with...

Perceptual Judgment of Voice Quality in Nondysphonic French Speakers: Effect of Task-, Speaker- and Listener-Related Variables
Several perceptual scales have been developed to assess voice quality in dysphonic voices, among which the Grade Roughness Breathiness Asthenia Strain and a Rate of Dysphonia scale is probably the most frequently used. However, this clinical tool has not been properly validated with a normophonic population yet. The aim of the present study was to provide a first set of reference data gathered from a normal population, to serve as a basis of comparison for vocologists and laryngologists working with...

Acoustic correlates of word stress in Papuan Malay
Publication date: May 2019Source: Journal of Phonetics, Volume 74Author(s): Constantijn KalandAbstractThe current study investigates acoustic correlates of word stress in Papuan Malay. This language is claimed to exhibit word stress, although empirical evidence is lacking. Moreover, related languages have been shown not to have stress, counter to earlier claims. Studies on stress in Austronesian languages have furthermore struggled to separate phrase level intonation phenomena from word level stress....
