Research Goals. The goals are to obtain data to substantiate the claim that speech production and perception are related and to validate the articulatory gesture as the link between production and perception. The method of inquiry involves attempting to show that those acoustic parameters that vary together as a result of some articulator movement also cohere in perception.
