What exactly do you mean bu phoneme distortion? 


Pardon the typos, it's Apple's fault.

Hi All,

I am seeking references on the subject of human speech intelligibility as a function of individual phoneme distortions. I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Can anybody help point me in the right direction?

I'd specifically like to know how word intelligibility holds up when distortions of a particular phoneme class would cause members of that class to be highly confusable when presented in isolation.

More generally, I wonder how well humans can do when consonants are relatively clear but vowels are highly ambiguous.

I suppose two ways this might have been studied would have been using, on the one hand, noise or channel distortions specifically targeted to distorting certain phoneme classes; or, on the other hand, manipulating the signal by switching certain phonemes to other perceptually nearby phonemes.

Dvaid ;)
