Abstract and Keywords

Successful speech production requires a speaker to map from an encoded phonological representation of linguistic form to a more detailed representation of sound structure that may interface with the motor planning and implementation system. This chapter describes phonetic processing as this component of language production. Although the mapping from context-independent sound representations to context-specific sound representations may be largely predictable, there are a variety of factors that affect the outcome of these processes still being explored. This chapter reviews the recent literature addressing phonetic and articulatory processing, and considers the implications of an interactive language production system by exploring research that focuses on the interaction of phonetic processing with “earlier” and later processing systems. It also reviews data from normal and impaired speaker populations using both traditional psycholinguistic methods and articulatory and acoustic analysis.

Keywords: phonetic processing, articulation, acoustics, speech impairment
