A group of Dutch and Cantonese listeners were compared on a audio-visual speech perception task. Using video techniques, lipmovements of syllables were dubbed on a speech signal such that the heard and seen place of articulation did not match . The Cantonese participants were more influenced by vision than the Dutch. We suggest that the phonological repertoire has an influence on audio-visual speech perception.
