Recognizing prosody across modalities, face areas and speakers: Examining perceivers’ sensitivity to variable realizations of visual prosody

Publication year: 2011 Source: Cognition, Available online 21 December 2011 Erin Cvejic, Jeesun Kim, Chris Davis Prosody can be expressed not only by modification to the timing, stress and intonation of auditory speech but also by modifying visual speech. Studies have shown that the production of visual cues to prosody is highly variable (both within and across speakers), however behavioural studies have shown that perceivers can effectively use such visual cues. The latter result suggests that people are sensitive to the type of prosody expressed despite cue variability.
