Auditory Analysis and Perception of Speech documents the proceedings of a symposium on ”Auditory Analysis and Perception of Speech” co-sponsored by the Academy of Sciences of the USSR and the Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences, held in Leningrad, August 21-24, 1973. The purpose of the meeting was to advance the theory of speech perception in relation to auditory theory and speech signal models with some outlooks into the problem of automatic speech recognition. The book contains papers that were presented during the last three of the five sessions held. Session III on vowel perception includes studies on the variability of the code in connected speech; an auditory model of the perception of quasistationary vowels; and vowel processing at higher levels of the brain. Session IV on consonant perception includes papers that cover topics such as property detection, auditory segmentation, and consonant perception. Session V, which focuses on the prosodic features of speech, includes studies on temporal regularities of spoken Swedish; internal, auditory representation of syllable nucleus durations; and the factors that determine the timing of speech utterances.
