ABSTRACT
This study aims at uncovering perceptually-relevant
cues for place of articulation in noise. Stimuli consisted
of /CV/ syllables where /C/ is one of /b,d,p,t,f,s,v,z/
and /V/, one of /a,i,u/, in different levels of white noise
(SNR range: -15 to 10 dB.) Four subjects participated
in the study. Results show that the perception of the
labial and alveolar place distinction in noise is depen-
dent on the manner, voicing, and vowel. Perception of
place for fricatives is more robust than that for plosives
except for voiced /Ca/ syllables. For voiceless conso-
