Effects of facial paralysis and presentation mode on perceptual-acoustic measures of consonant place
Keywords:Acoustics, Human engineering, Psychophysiology, Speech, Speech recognition, Consonant place, Facial paralysis effects
AbstractA speaker with bilateral facial paralysis (BFP) may present conflicting visual and acoustic cues when producing bilabials. Acoustic analysis revealed that the child with BFP produced some consonants in the CV syllables that were perceived by listeners as /b/ in the A-only condition and that had second formant frequency values consistent with those expected for the bilabial place of articulation. These CVs tended to contain back vowels.
