This paper presents an application to validate an acoustic signal characterization scheme for ocean acoustic tomography and geoacoustic inversions proposed by Taroudakis, Tzagkarakis, and Tsakalides [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. , 1396–1405 (2006)] using data from an experiment at sea. The data were collected during the Shallow...

This study explored gender-related differences in affricates' place of articulation of young Seoul Korean speakers. Word-initial and medial affricates before /a/ and /i/ collected from 42 adult Seoul speakers were compared with alveolar and palatalized fricatives in the same vowel conditions by examining spectral peak frequencies of the frication part of the consonants. Results showed evidence of gender differences in the...

Startling auditory stimulus (SAS) can trigger rapid release of pre-planned movement sequences and can effect a physiological perturbation of pitch level. An SAS-based paradigm was used to investigate planning of pitch profiles in English and Taiwanese Mandarin. Results show that startle-elicited pitch level is elevated, whereas pitch contours are preserved. These results support the view that pitch contours are pre-specified in speech plans, while absolute pitch level is not.
