Abstract [en]

This study explores the relation between misarticulations and their impact on intelligibility. 30 listeners (17 clinicians and 13 untrained listeners) were given the task of clicking a button whenever they perceived something unintelligible during playback of misarticulated child speech samples. No differences were found between the clinicians and the untrained listeners regarding clicking frequency. The distribution of listener clicks correlated strongly with the clinical evaluations of the same samples. The distribution of clicks was also related to manually annotated speech errors, allowing examination of links between events in the speech signal and reactions evoked in listeners. Hereby, we demonstrate a viable approach to ranking speech error types with regards to their impact on intelligibility in conversational speech.
