Kronrod et al. on phonetic perception

Now out Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, "A unified account of categorical effects in phonetic perception" by 2014 alum Yakov Kronrod, currently a data scientist at Amazon, with his PhD advisor Naomi Feldman, and Naomi's former RA, Emily Coppess, who is currently PhD student in linguistics at Chicago. The paper shows that both strong and weak categorical effects in perception of consonants and vowels can be captured by a unified statistical model, capturing differences in the degree of categorical effects through a single parameter.
