C04: Phonetic indices of syllabic organization: The crucial role of variability

PI(s): Gafos, Adamantios, Prof. Dr.

This project considers variability deriving from two sources, the articulatory motor system and language-particular linguistic structure. In the first funding period, we assessed if and how much of the observed variability derives from one or the other source and developed an approach that harnesses this variability to diagnose syllabic organization from the speech signal. The present project expands the empirical terrain of our studies, addresses a key related methodological issue which has remained stagnant for the last 25 years, and pursues the perceptual consequences of variability in the articulatory patterns established in our previous work in the first funding phase.
