Phylogenetic signal in phonotactics [article]

Jayden L. Macklin-Cordes, Claire Bowern, Erich R. Round
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Australian languages have been characterized as having a high degree of phonotactic homogeneity. Nevertheless, we detect phylogenetic signal in all datasets.  ...  Phylogenetic signal is greater in finer-grained frequency data than in binary data, and greatest in natural-class-based data.  ...  Phylogenetic signal in continuous phonotactic data We test whether a higher degree of phylogenetic signal is detectable in continuous-valued biphone characters.  ...

Male Responses to Conspecific Advertisement Signals in the Field Cricket Gryllus rubens (Orthoptera: Gryllidae)

2011 PLoS ONE  
in response to conspecific advertisement signals.  ...  In many species males aggregate and produce long-range advertisement signals to attract conspecific females.  ...  In response to conspecific advertisement signals, males of acoustic insects and anurans may employ two types of response: (1) phonotactic response in which males move toward the source of the signal  ...

Evolution and Trade-Off Dynamics of Functional Load

Erich Round, Rikker Dockum, Robin J. Ryder
2022 Entropy  
Though phylogenetic signals have been reported for phonological structures, such as phonotactics, their detection in measures of phonological function is novel.  ...  We find a high degree of phylogenetic signal in FL, indicating that FL values covary closely with genealogical structure across the family.  ...  The funders had no role in the design of the study; in the collection, analyses, or interpretation of data; in the writing of the manuscript, or in the decision to publish the results.  ...

Effects of heterospecific call overlap on the phonotactic behaviour of grey treefrogs

Vincent T. Marshall, Joshua J. Schwartz, H. Carl Gerhardt
2006 Animal Behaviour  
The results demonstrate that the effects of signal overlap on female phonotactic behaviour may be complex.  ...  We investigated the effects of overlap between the advertisement calls of two closely related and oftensympatric species of grey treefrogs on female phonotactic behaviour and signal selectivity.  ...  Phonotactic responses that may be affected by signal overlap include signal detection and recognition, the speed of the phonotactic approach, and the accuracy of sound-source localization.  ...
