Automatic detection of manner events based on temporal parameters

Ariel Salomon, Carol Espy-Wilson

In this study, we investigated how well acoustic events extracted from a cross-spectral temporal measure could be used to classify the manner and voicing of consonants. In particular, we developed seven measures that look at the strength and time difference between various onsets and offsets of acoustic energy. Consistent with findings by Shannon et al. (1995), our classification results show that manner and voicing information can be determined from dynamic temporal cues.
