Perception of Speech
-we extract words from a stream of speech
Recognition of Speech Soundsknow difference between phoneme and morpheme
-human vocalization is distinguished from other sounds
-auditory system recognizes the patterns of speech rather than the sounds themselves
-when analyzing detailed information of speech the left hemisphere plays a large role
-analysis of speech begins with Phoneme (minimum unit of sound in language)
-one distinction we can make in sounds is voice-onset time ( delay of the initial sound of
a consonant and the onset of vibration of the vocal chords)
-perception of a phoneme is affected by the sound that follows it
-phonemes cobind to form Morphemes (smallest unit of meaning in language)
Recognition of words in continous speech: the importance of learning and context
-a special electrical signal (N100 Wave) appears after people hear onset of a word
-we use context to interpret meaning
Understanding the Meaning of Speech
Syntax – grammar
Relationships between Semantics and Syntax
-sentences can be
Deep structure – sentence representation in terms of meaning
Surface Structure – grammatical features of a sentence
Knowledge of the world
-comprehension of speech requires knowledge about the world and particular situations
which we encounter
-this knowledge is organized into
SCRIPTS – characteristics that are typical of a situation
Brain Mechanisms of Verbal Behaviour
Speech Production: Evidence of Brocas Aphasia – know broca + wernicke damage
-neural mechanisms for speech production > frontal lobe
Damage to broca asphasia > slow labourous non fluent speech
