Spectral and perceptual evidence for consonant vowel co articulation in devoiced si and syu in japanese

, : Spectral and perceptual evidence for consonant vowel co articulation in devoiced si and syu in japanese. Phonetica 41(2): 61-71

The spectral and perceptual characteristics of devoiced /si/ and /syu/ syllables in Japanese were examined. Measurements showed that the deleted vowel can color the spectrum of the [.intg.] in these syllables, although the mean influence is small. Perception tests showed that Japanese listeners can use this spectral coloring as a cue to the identity of the underlying vowel, although identification was substantially worse than in syllables where the /i/ or /u/ is maintained. Apparently, a supposedly lower-level coarticulation between the fricative and the vowel can occur before a higher-level process deletes the vowel, contradicting the order implied by traditional accounts of speech as a translation of discrete phonological units.

We developed cell line LIS-3/SV40 from a primary myxoid liposarcoma with the t(12;16)(q13;p11.2) and trisomy 8. Following fusion of LIS-3/SV40 to mouse A9 cells, we obtained hybrid LIS-3/SV40/A9-B4 which contained the der(16) but neither the der(1...
