Abstract [en]

Over the course of languagedevelopment, infants learn native speechcategories and word boundaries fromspeech input. Although speech categorylearning and word segmentation learningoccur in parallel, most investigationshave focused on one, assuming somewhatmature develop ofthe other. To investigate the extent to which listeners cansimultaneouslysolve the categorization and segmentation learning challenges, wecreatedan artificial, non-linguistic stimulus space that modeled the acousticcomplexitiesof natural speech by recording a single talker’s multipleutterancesof a set of sentences containing four keywords. There was acousticvariabilityacross utterances, presenting a categorization challenge. Thekeywordswere embedded in continuous speech, presenting a segmentationchallenge.Sentences were spectrally rotated, rendering them whollyunintelligible, andpresented within a video-game training paradigm that doesnot rely uponexplicit feedback and yet is effective in training non-speech andnon-nativespeech categorizationWade & Holt2005; Lim & Holtsubmitted. Withjust 2 h of play, adult listeners could reliably extractword-length sound categoriesfrom continuous sound streams and generalizedlearning to noveltokens. The amount of“sentence”variability within training didnot influencelearning. [Research supported by NIH, NSF, and Riksbanken].
