Abstract

In this chapter, our concern is with the different kinds of cues that can be used to identify speech sounds from the acoustic waveform. As discussed Chapter 1, the majority of studies in this field were carried out after the invention of the sound spectrograph in the late 1940s and following the development of speech synthesis techniques and their application to speech perception studies.
