The last 50 years have witnessed a rapid growth in the understanding of the articulation and the acoustics of vowels. Contemporary theories of speech perception have concentrated on consonant perception, and this volume is intended as a balance to such bias. The authors propose acomputational theory of auditory vowel perception, accounting for vowel identification in the face of acoustic differences between speakers and speaking rate and stress. This work lays the foundation for future experimental and computational studies of vowel perception.

Editorial Reviews

"In this well-written and organized book, the authors provide an extensive review of the literature concerning vowel production and perception, which is organized around their theory of vowel perception, still under development .... The authors make a contribution to the field by proposing thebeginning of a computational auditory theory ... and by pointing out specific investigations that should be undertaken, thus providing ideas for future work." --Contemporary Psychology
