Abstract

The present study was carried out to investigate the effect of vowel context on the recognition of Kannada consonants in quiet for young adults. Subjects and Methods: A total of 17 young adults with normal hearing in both ears participated in the study. The stimuli included consonant-vowel syllables, spoken by 12 native speakers of Kannada. Consonant recognition task was carried out as a closed-set (fourteen-alternative forced-choice). Results: The present study showed an effect of vowel context on the perception of consonants. Maximum consonant recognition score was obtained in the/o/vowel context, followed by the/a/and/u/vowel contexts, and then the/e/context. Poorest consonant recognition score was obtained in the vowel context/i/. Conclusions: Vowel context has an effect on the recognition of Kannada consonants, and the vowel effect was unique for Kannada consonants.
