Listening Examples

Remez, R. E., Pardo, J. S., Piorkowski, R. L., & Rubin, P. E. (2001). On the bistability of sinewave analogs of speech. Psychological Science, 12, 24-29.

 

In Experiment 1, listeners were not able to match an isolated second formant pattern to the second formant of a synthetic word. One of the tasks that we used had this form:

Press Play to listen to:

 

 

The isolated second formant
of the word SHOOK.

 

The synthetic speech token
of the word SHOOK.

 

 

 

In Experiment 2, listeners were able to identify the word composed by patterned variation of tone analogs of formants, and were able concurrently to match the frequency pattern of an isolated tone to the analog of the second formant. One of the tasks that we used had this form:

Press Play to listen to:

 

 

The tone analog of the
second formant of SHOOK.

 

The sinewave word SHOOK.
