Processing relationships between language-being-spoken and other speech dimensions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


While indexical information is implicated in language processing, little is known about the internal structure of the system of indexical dimensions itself, particularly in bilinguals. A series of three experiments using the speeded classification paradigm investigated the relationship between various indexical and non-linguistic dimensions of speech in processing (talker identity, talker gender, and amplitude of speech) and a lesser-studied indexical dimension relevant to bilinguals, namely, which language is being spoken. Results demonstrate that language-being-spoken is integrated in some form with each of the other dimensions tested, and that this relationship is independent of listeners’ bilingual status.
