Abstract:

The report summarizes research on speech generation, speech analysis and speech perception. The work on speech generation and analysis includes studies of the dynamics of speech production through cineradiographic techniques and through acoustic analysis of formant motions in vowels in various consonantal contexts. Insight into the speech production process has also been gained through attempts to model certain aspects of this process - in particular, the activity of the vocal cords and the dynamics of tongue motion. Research on speech perception has included experiments on vowel perception and the development of models for speech perception. Also described are new experimental facilities that have been developed, including a terminal analog speech synthesizer under computer control and a facility for providing spectral information as input to a computer in real time.
