Disambiguation of Australian English vowels

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution

Abstract

Discriminability of Australian English vowel pairs was examined using a lexical decision task. 15 native listeners categorized 10,800 Australian English words with /hVd/ structure in a binary forced choice task. 16 target words differing only in the nuclear vowel were presented as auditory stimuli, paired with each of the remaining 15 words as competitors. Accuracy and reaction time were measured. Results show that target vowel and the phonetic similarity of target vowel and competitor vowel affect lexical decision.
