Every language has a specific way to combine consonants and vowels. In English, we use consonants together, like ‘pl’ in the word ‘plant’. But, how do we perceive these sounds? How do we know if a ‘pla’ is different from a ‘kla’ if it isn’t in a specific context?
This study focuses on the perception of speech sounds. In this experiment, we want to know whether you can detect different sounds. Every so often, a new sound may occur – can you hear the difference?
We want to know the difference between words. For example, if you hear the word ‘stray’ and then ‘stray’ again, these will be the same. However, if you hear ‘stray’ and then ‘tray’, then these will be different.
