<p>Abstract:</p><p>Understanding the relation between speech production and perception is foundational to phonetic theory, and is similarly central to theories of the phonetics of sound change. For sound changes that are arguably perceptually motivated, it is particularly important to establish that an individual listenerâs selective attentionâfor example, to the redundant information afforded by coarticulationâis reflected in that individualâs own productions. This study reports the results of a pair of experiments designed to test the hypothesis that individuals who produce more consistent and extensive coarticulation will attend to that information especially closely in perception. The production experiment used nasal airflow to measure the time course of participantsâ coarticulatory vowel nasalization; the perception experiment used an eye-tracking paradigm to measure the time course of those same participantsâ attention to coarticulated nasality. Results showed that a speakerâs coarticulatory patterns predicted, to some degree, that individualâs perception, thereby supporting the hypothesis: participants who produced earlier onset of coarticulatory nasalization were, as listeners, more efficient users of nasality as that information unfolded over time. Thus, an individualâs perception of coarticulated speech is made public through their productions.</p>
