    • The impact of real-time articulatory information on phonetic transcription: Ultrasound-aided transcription in cleft lip and palate speech 

      Cleland, Joanne; Lloyd, Susan; Campbell, Linsay; Crampin, Lisa; Palo, Pertti; Sugden, Eleanor; Wrench, Alan A.; Zharkova, Natalia (Karger, 2019-05-24)
      Objective: This study investigated whether adding an additional modality, namely ultrasound tongue imaging, to perception-based phonetic transcription impacted on the identification of compensatory articulations and on ...
    • How young adults with autism spectrum disorder watch and interpret pragmatically complex scenes 

      Lönnqvist, Linda; Loukusa, Soile; Hurtig, Tuula; Mäkinen, Leena; Siipo, Antti; Väyrynen, Eero; Palo, Pertti; Laukka, Seppo; Mämmelä, Laura; Mattila, Marja-Leena; Ebeling, Hanna (Taylor & Francis, 2017-11-01)
      The aim of the current study was to investigate subtle characteristics of social perception and interpretation in high-functioning individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), and to study the relation between watching ...
    • Comparing pitch distributions using Praat and R 

      Lennes, Mietta; Stevanovic, Melisa; Aalto, Daniel; Palo, Pertti (Journal of ISPhS/International Society of Phonetic, 2016-02)
      Pitch analysis tools are used widely in order to measure and to visualize the melodic aspects of speech. The resulting pitch contours can serve various research interests linked with speech prosody, such as intonational ...
    • Glottal squeaks in VC sequences 

      Hejna, Misa; Palo, Pertti; Moisik, Scott (ISCA, 2016)
      This paper reports results related to the phenomenon referred to as a glottal squeak- (coined by [1]). At present, nothing is known about the conditioning and the articulation of this feature of speech. Our qualitative ...
    • Emotions in freely varying and mono-pitched vowels, acoustic and EGG analyses 

      Waaramaa, Teija; Palo, Pertti; Kankare, Elina (2015-10)
      Vocal emotions are expressed either by speech or singing. The difference is that in singing the pitch is predetermined while in speech it may vary freely. It was of interest to study whether there were voice quality ...
    • Effect of phonetic onset on acoustic and articulatory speech reaction times studied with tongue ultrasound 

      Palo, Pertti; Schaeffler, Sonja; Scobbie, James M. (International Phonetic Association, 2015-08-15)
      We study the effect that phonetic onset has on acoustic and articulatory reaction times. An acoustic study by Rastle et al. (2005) shows that the place and manner of the first consonant in a target affects acoustic RT. An ...
    • Pre-speech tongue movements recorded with ultrasound 

      Palo, Pertti; Schaeffler, Sonja; Scobbie, James M. (2014-05-09)
      We analyse Ultrasound Tongue Imaging (UTI) data from five speakers, whose native languages (L1) are English (3 peakers), German (1 speaker), and Finnish (1 speaker). The data consist of single words spoken in the subjects' ...
    • A Short Term Study of Hungarians Learning Finnish Vowels 

      Peltola, T.; Palo, Pertti; Aaltonen, O. (Fonetiikan P_iv_t, 2014)
      A group of Hungarian students (n=10) participated in a Finnish phonetics and conversation course during the first 3 months of their language studies. During the course, the students trained in the allophonic variation of ...
