Examples of Spanish stimuli with manipulations of fundamental frequency, duration and amplitude

The procedure for the creation of the stimuli is described in:

Manipulation of fundamental frequency (f0)

  “número” [ˈnumeɾo] (PP, proparoxytone) with values from “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone)

 “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone) with values from “numeró” [numeˈɾo] (O, oxytone)

Manipulation of duration

 “número” [ˈnumeɾo] (PP, proparoxytone) with values from “nuˈmero” [numeɾo] (P paroxytone)

 “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P paroxytone) with values from “numeró” [numeˈɾo] (O, oxytone)

Manipulation of amplitude

 “número” [ˈnumeɾo] (PP, proparoxytone) with values from “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone)

 “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone) with values from “numeró” [numeˈɾo] (O, oxytone)

Simultaneous manipulation of duration and amplitude

 “número” [ˈnumeɾo] (PP, proparoxytone) with values from “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone)

 “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone) with values from “numeró” [numeˈɾo] (O, oxytone)

Simultaneous manipulation of fundamental frequency (f0) and amplitude

 “número” [ˈnumeɾo] (PP, proparoxytone) with values from “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone)

 “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone) with values from “numeró” [numeˈɾo] (O, oxytone)

Simultaneous manipulation of fundamental frequency (f0) and duration

 “número” [ˈnumeɾo] (PP, proparoxytone) with values from “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone)

 “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone) with values from “numeró” [numeˈɾo] (O, oxytone)

Simultaneous manipulation of fundamental frequency (f0), duration and amplitude

 “"número” [ˈnumeɾo] (PP, proparoxytone) with values from “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone)

 “numero” [nuˈmeɾo] (P, paroxyone) with values from “numeró” [numeˈɾo] (O, oxytone)
