In a new paper, Li and Zhang investigate the perceptual distinctiveness of dental vs. palatal sibilants in different vowel contexts in a speeded-AX discrimination experiment. They find that the [_i] context introduces reduced distinction of the place contrast between dental and palatal sibilants, compared with other vowels.

In a new article, Sandra A. Zerkle, Elise C. Rosa, and Jennifer E. Arnold examine the effect of thematic role predictability on acoustic reduction of NP descriptions, and finds that durations were shorter for references to the goal than the source of transfer events, but only when the timing of stimuli encouraged incremental utterance planning (vs.pre-planning), supporting the planning facilitation view of production.

In a new article, Jonathan Howell, Mats Rooth and Michael Wagne present a new methodological approach which combines both naturally-occurring speech harvested on the web and speech data elicited in the laboratory, cross-validated using machine learning

In a new article, James Tanner, Morgan Sonderegger, and Michael Wagner present a corpus study on coronal stop deletion in British English, which finds that effects of upcoming content on deletion rate are modulated by factors affecting the scope of production planning, as predicted by the hypothesis that the locality of planning constrains variability in phonological processes.
"Production planning and coronal stop deletion in spontaneous speech" is the latest article in our journal's special collection on Prosodic Variability:

In a new study, Sophie Salffner investigates tonal, segmental and voice quality cues in polar questions in #Ikaan (Niger-Congo; ISO 639-3: kcf). She discusses the findings in relation to a West African lax #prosody, and proposes how the Ikaan #phonation mode markers can be integrated into the frequency code model.
This #openaccess paper "West African languages enrich the frequency code: Multi-functional pitch and multi-dimensional prosody in Ikaan polar questions" is part of our Special Collection on multiplicity of cues and functions in prosody.
