Abstract / Description:Experiments have revealed differences across languages in
listeners’ use of stress information in recognising spoken
words. Previous comparisons of the vocabulary of Spanish and
English had suggested that the explanation of this asymmetry
might lie in the extent to which considering stress in spokenword
recognition allows rejection of unwanted competition
from words embedded in other words. This hypothesis was
tested on the vocabularies of Dutch and German, for which
word recognition results resemble those from Spanish more
than those from English. The vocabulary statistics likewise
revealed that in each language, the reduction of embeddings
resulting from taking stress into account is more similar to the
reduction achieved in Spanish than in English.
