L’effet d’aimant perceptif : réponses préliminaires au débat entre hypothèses acoustique et cognitive

Abstract : Given the consequences of the Perceptual Magnet Effect on phonological theory, and the lack of agreement as to whether it reflects low-level processes triggered by specific acoustic features in certain vowels or higher level cognitive mechanisms associated with language acquisition, we conducted two pilot experiments involving quantal~non quantal French vowels continua /a/~/ɛ/ and /i/~/e/. Preliminary results in two discrimination tasks tend to show that sensitivity near the quantal prototype tends to be smaller than sensitivity near the non quantal prototype, which might lead to the tentative conclusion that the quantal (acoustic) explanation for the PME could interfere with the cognitive hypothesis.
