Vowel epenthesis in non-native consonant clusters by native Japanese speakers was investigated in terms of both production and perception. In a reading experiment (subjects read English words and nonsense words) native Japanese speakers inserted t...

The magnetoencephalographic mismatch responses were elicited by epenthetic vowels (i.e. allophones), suggesting that the native Japanese detected epenthetic vowels as real segments. Based on these results, we may conclude that the sensitivity of J...

Vowel epenthesis is a well known phenomenon that non-native speakers insert epenthetic vowels inside non-native consonant clusters. Vowel epenthesis is assumed as perceptual "illusory vowels" (Dupoux, et al. 1999). We analyzed vowel epenthesis sho...

We have developed an internet speech analysis system using e-mail and web technology called PASTE. We have promoted for this system to be put into general use. In particular we visited USA, England, Australia and the Republic of Korea, in the hope...
