The coarticulation/invariance scale: Mutual information as a measure of coarticulation resistance, motor synergy, and articulatory invariance

Khalil Iskarous, Christine Mooshammer, Phil Hoole, Daniel Recasens, Christine H. Shadle, Elliot Saltzman, D. H. Whalen
2013 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
This scale is based on physical information flow in the articulatory signal, and uses Information Theory, especially the concept of mutual information, to quantify these central concepts of speech research  ...  The relation between the proposed scale and several existing theories of coarticulation is discussed, and implications for existing theories of speech production and perception are presented.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work was supported by NSF 1246750 to the University of Southern California, NIH-NIDCD grants DC-002717 and DC-008780 to Haskins Laboratories, German Research Council projects TI 69  ...
