Title: Evidence for Phonological Categories from Speech Perception
Written By: José R. Benki
Description:

Two experiments are presented that test how listeners use certain acoustic cues to classify English stop consonants with regard to two phonological dimensions, place of articulation and voicing. Loglinear models of listener classification suggest that the categorization observed here is best described using the phonological category of distinctive feature. Features are argued to play a role in classification and are fundamental to speech perception.
