Ansichten griechischer Rituale: Geburtstags-Symposium für Walter Burkert

Even the main decided enemy of Festschriften may well baulk at refusing one to Walter Burkert, for there are few students whose paintings has been extra universally sought after and applauded. at the social gathering of his sixty fifth birthday in 1996 a gaggle of former students (Graf, Riedweg and Szlezák) and fellow students of Greek faith collected on the Römerstiftung René Clavel in Augst close to Basel to have fun his success with a symposium.

Example text

The key issue here is the redundant nature of the acoustic structure of natural speech. When synthetic stimuli are used listeners may use the available acousticphonetic information in a manner differently than they would process the same phonetic distinction with natural speech. The only resolution to this question is to compare the effects observed with synthetic stimuli to those found with natural speech. ACKNOWLEDGMENT The preparation of this chapter was supported, in part, by NIDCD grant R01-DC00219 to the University at Buffalo.

3 Organization by coordinate variation A classic understanding of the perception of speech derives from study of the acoustic correlates of phonetic contrasts and the physical and articulatory means by which they are produced (reviewed by Raphael, this volume; also, see Fant, 1960; Liberman, Ingemann, Lisker, Delattre, & Cooper, 1959; Stevens & House, 1961). In addition to calibrating the perceptual response to natural samples of speech, researchers also used acoustic signals produced synthetically in detailed psychoacoustic studies of phonetic identification and differentiation.

Before describing these, we should note some basics of how automated formant tracking works. 5). In addition, we need an assessment of the source of the speech signal as voiced or not. These data can then be converted to formant tracks using a set of constraints. The first constraint is to define a frequency region for each formant and starting values. Furthermore, this region and starting values should be scaled for the vocal tract length of the talker. For a male voice, the search for F1 could be confined to the frequency region of 220 Hz to 900 Hz with a starting value in the area of 450–500 Hz.
