  1. 1. Perception, Analysis and Synthesis of Speaker Age

    Detta är en avhandling från Linguistics and Phonetics

    Författare :Susanne Schötz; [2006]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; phonology; perceptual cues; speaker age; automatic speaker recognition; acoustic analysis; acoustic correlates; data-driven; Phonetics; formant synthesis; Fonetik; fonologi; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Sammanfattning : Speaker age is an important paralinguistic feature in speech which has to be considered in the study of phonetic variation. Knowledge about this feature may be used to improve speech technology applications, e.g. automatic speech recognition and speech synthesis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The acquisition of contrast a longitudinal investigation of initial s+plosive cluster development in Swedish children

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Filosofi och lingvistik

    Författare :Fredrik Karlsson; Kirk P. H. Sullivan; Peter E. Czigler; Marilyn M. Vihman; [2006]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; phonological contrast; speech development; place and manner of articulation; aspiration; structural complexity; acoustic cues; homonym production; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Languages and linguistics Linguistic subjects Phonetics; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Språkvetenskap Lingvistikämnen Fonetik;

    Sammanfattning : This Thesis explores the development of word-initial s+plosive consonant clusters in the speech of Swedish children between the ages of 1;6 and 4;6. Development in the word-initial consonant clusters is viewed as being determined by 1) the children’s ability to articulate the target sequence of consonants, 2) the level of understanding of which acoustic features in the adult model production are significant for the signalling of the intended distinction, and 3) the children’s ability to apply established production patterns only to productions where the acquired feature agrees with the adult target, to achieve a contrast between rival output forms.

  3. 3. Self-motion and Presence in the Perceptual Optimization of a Multisensory Virtual Reality Environment

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Filosofi och lingvistik

    Författare :Alexander Väljamäe; [2005]

    Sammanfattning : Determining the perceptually optimal resolution of multisensory renderingmight help to foster the development of cost-effective, highly immersivemulti-modal displays for mediated environments (e.g. virtual and augmentedreality). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Modes of Apprehension, and Indicators thereof, in Visual Discrimination of Relative Mass

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Isabell Andersson; Sverker Runeson; Alan Costall; [2009]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Modes of apprehension; dynamical-event perception; ecological psychology; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Perception is a fundamental function because it allows organisms to be in contact with the environment and adjust to environmental conditions. Humans also possess higher intellectual functions, which allow for elaborate handling of perceptually obtained information. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Sound for Multisensory Motion Simulators

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Alexander Väljamäe; [2007]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; auditory scene synthesis; spatial audio; presence; virtual reality; cognitive acoustics; illusory self-motion; vection ; multisensory optimization;

    Sammanfattning : Interaction in a virtual reality environment often implies situations of illusory self-motion, like, for example, in flight or driving scenarios. Striving for pictorial realism, currently available motion simulators often exhibit relatively poor sound design. LÄS MER
