Abstract

Six normal speakers served as subjects; 3 were considered `Young Normal' (YN) and ranged in age from 20 to 25 years; 3 subjects were considered `Older Normal' (ON) and ranged in age from 50 to 78 years. All subjects were native English speakers. Subjects produced the sentence `I see two and I see tea again', fifteen times at six different rates. Rate was manipulated using a magnitude production task (c.f. Adams et al., 1993). Subjects produced the sentence at a self-selected normal rate of speech. Subjects were then asked to produce the sentence at two and four times their normal rate, one half and one quarter their normal rate, and maximally fast. Rate conditions were randomized for all subjects. Upper lip protrusion, transduced using strain gauges (Barlow et al., 1983), and the acoustic signal were digitized
