Towards an optimal tone space

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


    The utility of tones spaces based on tone productions can be judged on the degree to which they (i) differentiate tone productions and (ii) predict tone perception. Here based on a production corpus, 5 different 2-dimensional tone spaces are constructed. Euclidean distances between tone pairs in these various tone spaces are then related to perceptual ability with tones by different language groups to determine relative tone space utility.
