This paper presents the experimental results of investigation in a research on the phoneme restoration effects for the case of degraded speech communication. The first experiment examined the role of coarticulation in consonant restoration inside CV syllables. In the second experiment the phonological effects in initial consonant restoration around the words were demonstrated. The third experiment demonstrated consonant restoration effects inside the sentences either grammatically and semantically correct or incorrect. Finally, the fourth experiment showed an integral effects of coarticulation, phonology, syntax and semantics on phoneme restoration in spontaneous speech communication.
