1 Potato, 2 Wotatoes, 3 Otatoes: Lexical Access In Australian Languages
This project aims to investigate how listeners use cues from the way speech sounds are produced to break the speech stream into individual, recognisable words.
The project investigates Australian languages that show unusual patterns in the production of speech sounds to generate new knowledge about speech perception and production. Outcomes will include advances in theories of speech processing, informing the development of speech processing systems and contributions to Indigenous cultural maintenance.
