Special Issue on Processing Lexical Tones in Natural Speech

This special issue aims to address questions about how lexical tones are 
processed by humans and machines in the context of natural, continuous 
speech. Lexical tones in tone languages have been widely investigated in the 
fields of linguistics, psycholinguistics, computational linguistics, and 
language acquisition by applying a wide range of theoretical, empirical, and 
experimental approaches. As the phonetic representation of lexical tones 
which are produced in connected speech can differ considerably from that of 
lexical tones which are produced in isolation, research interests constantly 
grow in how lexical tones are produced, perceived, and processed in realistic 
speech data. This special issue aims to bring together methodologies from 
different research disciplines to extend our understanding of lexical tones 
used in real speaking situations. We welcome submissions addressing the 
following issues.

-Modeling lexical tones: Can lexical tones which are produced in natural 
speech be more accurately described and modeled by quantitative/gradient 
measures or by categorical systems? Is a hybrid approach possible? In what 
way can lexical tones be represented and analyzed by utilizing spoken 
corpora?

-Human language processing: What role do lexical tones play in the mental 
lexicon? How are lexical tones produced and perceived by native and non-
native language users?

-Language acquisition: How are lexical tones acquired by typical developing 
children, hearing-impaired children, and second language learners? Are the 
phonological development patterns different from each other?

-Speech technology: What kind of information about lexical tones can be 
integrated into ASR and synthesis systems to improve system 
performances?

-Other research results related to lexical tones in natural speech are also 
welcome to contribute to this special issue.

Paper submission deadline: January 2, 2013
Notification of acceptance: May 31, 2013
Final paper due: August 31, 2013
Tentative publication date: December, 2013

All submitted papers should present original research work, which has not 
been published elsewhere. Submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at 
least two independent reviewers. For detailed submission guidelines, please
