1995 Vowel Identification in Digitally Filtered Silent-Center Syllables (abstract available on request)

Independent Study Project, Indiana University Speech and Hearing Department

This study examined a single component of vowel recognition: the sounds made in the transition from consonant to vowel in a spoken word. These onset and offglide transitions provide an enormous amount of information for vowel recognition. It is possible to digitally remove the vowel altogether, leaving only the consonants, and the listener is still able to reliably understand the spoken word. The robustness of this aspect of vowel recognition was explored.
