2015-02-04  · The stimuli were presented binaurally at a comfortable listening level corresponding to a sound pressure level of 70 dB (A). The duration of each test was ∼6 min and consisted of 210 trials. Three performance measures were compared across blocks: correct detection (HIT), false alarms (FAs: errors of omission and commission), and reaction time.

In 1962, when I was first appointed to the academic staff at UCL, as an Assistant Lecturer on the princely annual salary of £950 in what was then the Department of Phonetics, the problem of competing phonetic transcription systems for English was at its worst. We operated with three different systems, depending on who we were teaching — EFL.

Lexical access, syntactic structure assignment, and meaning assignment happen at the same time in parallel. Several syntactic hypotheses can be considered at a time. The interactive model demonstrates an on-line interaction between the structural and lexical and phonetic levels of sentence processing.

2016-12-28  · Phonological variant recognition: representations and rules. Pinnow E, Connine CM. The current research explores the role of lexical representations and processing in the recognition of phonological variants. Two alternative approaches for variant recognition are considered: a representational approach that posits frequency-graded lexical.

Climate change presents perhaps the most profound challenge ever to have confronted human social, political, and economic systems. The stakes are massive, the risks and uncertainties severe, the economics controversial, the science besieged, the politics bitter and complicated, the psychology puzzling, the impacts devastating, the interactions.

New International Political Economy Political economy, branch of social science that studies the relationships between individuals and society and between markets and the state, using a diverse set of tools and methods drawn largely from economics, political science, and sociology.

M.A. Moreno, G.C. van Orden, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, 2001. 2.1 The Lexical Decision Task. In the lexical decision task, a person is presented, on each trial, with a target string of letters, and must judge whether the target string is a correctly spelled word in English (or some other reference language).

This essay focuses on the media’s response to sex crimes, how news reporting can affect people’s perceptions of sex offenders, and how all of these issues are connected to the development of law. The rate of sex crimes has been steadily declining for the past 20 years, and official rates of recidivism for sex offenders are actually low.

Every time I read a new and unknown word containing the letter ‘i’ I wonder how I should pronounce it. What’s very frustrating for me is that, when I look up the words, I find out that my gut feeling was wrong for most of them.

Adults perceive phonetic information categorically. For instance, the speech sounds /da/ and /ta/ differ with respect to the phonetic feature of voice onset time (VOT), and when presented with syllables with VOTs varying continuously, adults perceive only two sounds: /da/ or /ta/. Furthermore, adults are easily able to extract phonetic.
