We move towards the sameness we need to draw out in order to make sense of the signal for the purpose of perception (as listeners), or explanation (as phoneticians) (TUTORIAL – SAMENESS AND VARIABILITY). The speaker’s decisions about how to speak a word or phrase are cognitive and therefore abstract; they are intended to match as precisely as possible the listener’s perception of the signal. We assume that speakers want to be understood. Equally, therefore, the listener’s perception and sequence of labels are themselves abstract.
In speech production and perception studies, for example, a sequence of symbols like the IPA can be used to transcribe a cognitive representation of the speech sound wave. It is usually assumed that the corresponding cognitive representation takes the form of symbols in the speaker’s or listener’s mind. In classical phonetics the IPA can transcribe the phonetician’s more objective, trained view of the acoustic signal. varying actual signal. 2. Here the focus is away from any vertical segmentation of the signal and towards the way in which the on-running parallel parameters or tracks contribute to the overall signal.
Here is a chart of the fricatives of English, showing, by using + and/or −, the speaker’s intended presence or absence of periodic and aperiodic sources and the approximate location of the point of constriction being used to generate the frication. Lips Teeth Alveolar ridge Front of palate Vocal cords f v θ ð s z ʃ ʒ h Aperiodic frication + + + + + + + + + Periodic vocal cord vibration − + − + − + − + − In terms of the place of articulation of these fricatives, we see that we can involve the lips, the tongue tip and tongue blade as mobile articulators, and the upper teeth and the area of the palate immediately behind the teeth, the alveolar ridge, as fixed articulators.
