Accès lexical et reconnaissance du voisement en voix chuchotée

Abstract : The recognition of the voicing feature of whispered obstruant consonants was examined in a cross modal semantic priming paradigm. A priming effect of similar magnitude to that observed in modal voice was found only when the whispered prime includes a voiceless obstruant (e.g. dessert primes CHOCOLAT). No priming effect was found when the whispered prime includes a voiced obstruant (désert) neither on the target word SABLE semantically related to desert, nor on the target word CHOCOLAT semantically related to dessert. Hence, although a few studies have shown that whispered voiced obstruent consonants retain phonetic traces of their underlying identity, our study shows that these consonants are ambiguous for the listeners, and that their recognition is not immediate.
