Abstract

The perception of speech is one of the most fascinating attributes of human behavior; both the auditory periphery and higher centers help define the parameters of sound perception. In this paper some of the fundamental perceptual problems facing speech sciences are described. The paper focuses on several of the new directions speech perception research is taking to solve these problems. Recent developments suggest that major breakthroughs in research and theory will soon be possible. The current study of segmentation, invariance, and normalization are described. The paper summarizes some of the new techniques used to understand auditory perception of speech signals and their linguistic significance to the human listener.
