AbstractAn audio-visual perception study of Bulgarian and Russian palatalized consonants is presented. The implication is that the secondary palatal gesture is not enough to cue the perception of these consonants. In a gating task, a subject hears a stimulus over a number of gates, and at each gate an increased amount of information is available. Auditory-only and audio-visual gating tasks were performed in order to establish how much auditory and visual information a listener needs in order to identify a consonant as palatalized. The stimuli were produced by 2 male speakers of Russian and Bulgarian. They were recorded in a sound-proof booth. Noise was introduced to the sound file of the audio-visual condition to encourage the subjects to attend to the visual information. This study aims to compare the perception of palatalized consonants in Standard Bulgarian and Standard Russian.
