Factors affecting speech retrieval

Corinna Ng, Ross Wilkinson, Justin Zobel
1998 5th International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP 1998)   unpublished
Collections of speech documents can be searched using speech retrieval, in which the documents are processed by a speech recogniser to give text that can be searched by standard text retrieval techniques  ...  Retrieval was based on n-grams. We found that trigrams performed better than quadgrams because the longer n-gram features contained too many transcription errors.  ...  The experiments conducted here is a limited study of various factors in uencing recognition and retrieval of speech documents.  ...

A Per-second Investigation of the Interconnectedness between Linguistic and Cognitive Factors Underlying L2 Willingness to Communicate

Shahin Nematizadeh
2022 Journal for the psychology of language learning  
The interviews were coded, and instances where WTC was affected by cognitive and linguistic factors were identified and analysed.  ...  Three patterns of interconnectedness emerged: (1) WTC and linguistic factors; (2) WTC and cognitive factors; and (3) WTC, and linguistic and cognitive factors.  ...  such as vocabulary retrieval (Wood, 2016) and self-monitoring (Nematizadeh & Wood, 2019) ; linguistic factors or selfperceived performance (Nematizadeh, 2019) ; and affective factors such as anxiety  ...

Willingness to Communicate and Second Language Speech Fluency: An Idiodynamic Investigation of Attractor States

Shahin Nematizadeh
2021 Journal for the psychology of language learning  
Results demonstrated that attractors were likely to emerge in both WTC and L2 fluency, and largely depended on two categories of content-related and linguistic-cognitive factors.  ...  (e.g., lexical retrieval, vocabulary knowledge, or perceived competence) factors, many of which have been found to also affect speech fluency.  ...  This could be explained by the fact that factors shaping the dynamics of speech production could simultaneously affect WTC.  ...

Why Do We Gesture When We Speak?

Robert M. Krauss
1998 Current Directions in Psychological Science  
How might gesturing affect lexical retrieval? Human memory employs several different formats to represent knowledge, and much of the content of 1 Address correspondence to Robert M.  ...  by aiding in the retrieval of elusive words from lexical memory.  ...  HOW DO GESTURES AFFECT SPEECH? It seems clear that gesturing facilitates the production of fluent speech by affecting the ease or difficulty of retrieving words from lexical memory.  ...

MFCC Based Speech Retrieval

2019 VOLUME-8 ISSUE-10, AUGUST 2019, REGULAR ISSUE  
This paper presents an approach for speech retrieval. The feature being used in this approach is MFCC.  ...  This approach does not use any phoneme recognizer or Speech to text tool hence it can be used for other languages as well leads to the problem of speech retrieval (SR).  ...  The recognition output quality is mainly affected by the following factors [5] :  Speech variability: The temporal and acoustic properties of the same utterance may vary considerably, even if the same  ...

How Part-of-Speech Tags Affect Text Retrieval and Filtering Performance [article]

Robert M. Losee
1996 arXiv   pre-print
Here we provide a model of retrieval and tagging that allows us to both compute the performance change due to syntactic parsing and to allow us to understand what factors affect performance and how.  ...  Natural language processing (NLP) applied to information retrieval (IR) and filtering problems may assign part-of-speech tags to terms and, more generally, modify queries and documents.  ...  A part-of-speech tag assigned to the term girl in sentences like girl bites dog and dog bites girl can be used by a retrieval system to retrieve only those documents in which a girl acts as biter (subject  ...

AAC Intervention for Stroke Survivors - An Anomic Aphasic Case Study

Mohammed Eliyas, Sivaranjani Balasubramanian
2021 International Journal of Health Sciences and Research  
Aphasia is an impairment of language that is a consequence of a cerebral insult or damage affecting the speech production and/or comprehension, as well as the ability to read or write.  ...  The results showed that the client was able to perform much better in terms of the word retrieving abilities and is now able to communicate well.  ...  High Tech AACs have become more preferable and various factors like visual screen displays, text to speech options and availability of personalization contributed to their superiority and faster progress  ...

Lexical Search and Order of Mention in Sentence Production [chapter]

Willem Levelt, Ben Maasen
1981 Crossing the Boundaries in Linguistics  
If retrieving the phonetic form is easy, latency would be relatively short. For both frames retrieving the other phonetic form would occur during speech and therefore not affect speech latency.  ...  It did, however, affect the latency to speech.  ...

Interaction between semantic and orthographic factors in conceptually driven naming: Comment on Starreveld and La Heij (1995)

1996 Journal of Experimental Psychology. Learning, Memory and Cognition  
1995) tested the seriality view of lexical access in speech production, according to which lexical selection and the encoding of a word's form proceed in serial order without feedback.  ...  Because both semantic and orthographic factors affect lemma retrieval, their combined effects do not have to be additive.  ...  If one dispenses with lemma retrieval (i.e., if concepts are mapped directly onto phonological forms), both semantic and orthographic factors may affect phonological encoding (which would then coincide  ...

Relating Lexical Access and Second Language Speaking Performance

Yu Liu
2020 Languages  
Vocabulary size and lexical retrieval speed were significant predictors of speech rate. However, vocabulary size and lexical retrieval speed each affected learners' speaking performance differently.  ...  Vocabulary plays a key role in speech production, affecting multiple stages of language processing.  ...  Under the impact from the above factors, the L2 speech production process is serial, rather than automatized, which causes L2 speech to be less fluent.  ...

Research, education and clinical practice: an example of a learning community in the field of Speech and Language Therapy

Eline Alons, Manon Van Daatselaar, Dorien Preuter, Kim Van der Zalm, Lizet Van Ewijk
2017 Journal of the European Honors Council  
Several factors affect the speed and accuracy of word retrieval. Two of these factors are frequency of occurrence of a word and age of acquisition.  ...  The influence of frequency on word retrieval is commonly described; the more often the word is used, the easier and faster we retrieve the word from our brain.  ...

Emotion based Contextual Semantic Relevance Feedback in Multimedia Information Retrieval

Karm VeerSingh, Anil K. Tripathi
2012 International Journal of Computer Applications  
We are proposing an Affective Feature Based Implicit Contextual Semantic Relevance Feedback (AICSRF) to investigate whether audio and speech along with visual could determine the current context in which  ...  Observations suggest that CQPS in AICSRF incorporating such affective features reduce the search space hence retrieval time and increase the system's contextual semantic understanding.  ...  Considering above factors, we propose an emotional spoken word recognition system of reasonably robust performance and accuracy across all individual speakers by keeping user's real affective profile database  ...

Effects of Age on Serial Recall of Natural and Synthetic Speech

Larry E. Humes, Kathleen J. Nelson, David B. Pisoni, Scott E. Lively
1993 Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research  
The primary issue addressed in the present study is whether aging affects the short-term recall of natural or synthetic speech.  ...  In addition, Luce, Feustel, and Pisoni (1983) have demonstrated that short-term storage and retrieval of word sequences is poorer for synthetic speech than for natural speech in young adults with normal  ...  Each ANOVA examined the effects of the betweensubject factor of subject group and the within-subject factors of rate, difficulty, and serial position.  ...
