Sequencing at the syllabic and supra-syllabic levels during speech perception: an fMRI study

Isabelle Deschamps, Pascale Tremblay
2014 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
The supra-syllabic complexity was manipulated by creating sequences composed of the same syllable repeated six times (e.g., /pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa/) and sequences of three different syllables each repeated  ...  The processing of fluent speech involves complex computational steps that begin with the segmentation of the continuous flow of speech sounds into syllables and words.  ...  syllables -simple syllables) and the effect of supra-syllabic complexity (complex sequences -simple sequences).  ...

On structured sparsity of phonological posteriors for linguistic parsing

Milos Cernak, Afsaneh Asaei, Hervé Bourlard
2016 Speech Communication  
In the context of speech processing, a deep neural network (DNN) is an effective computational method to infer the probability of individual phonological classes from a short segment of speech signal.  ...  Linguistic and neurocognitive studies recognize the phonological classes at segmental level as the essential and invariant representations used in speech temporal organization.  ...  correspond to the distal representation of the gestures in the gestural model of speech production (and perception).  ...

Outstanding questions about phonological processing in dyslexia

Franck Ramus
2001 Dyslexia  
The phonological level of representation also embodies phonotactic regularities, patterns of phoneme assimilation and alternation, as well as supra-segmental knowledge pertaining to syllable structure,  ...  The model emphasizes that phonological forms of lexical items are distinct from non-lexical phonological representations.  ...  The ideas presented in this paper owe much to discussions with Emmanuel Dupoux, Sharon Peperkamp, Ghislaine Dehaene-Lambertz and members of the LSCP in Paris, as well as with Uta Frith, Karin Landerl,  ...

Standard Yorùbá context dependent tone identification using Multi-Class Support Vector Machine (MSVM)

A.A. Sosimi, T. Adegbola, O.A. Fakinlede
2019 Journal of Applied Sciences and Environmental Management  
The Standard Yorùbá (SY) is a language composed of syllable with tones and requires different method for the acoustic modeling. In this paper, a context dependent tone acoustic model was developed.  ...  Most state-of-the-art large vocabulary continuous speech recognition systems employ context dependent (CD) phone units, however, the CD phone units are not efficient in capturing long-term spectral dependencies  ...  The tone introduces the requirements of generation of tone annotations from SY syllable tier. The algorithm for the production of equivalent tone transcriptions is described in this section.  ...
