In the case of liquid sounds, we observed that, the sounds drip in container and filling a container were not, distinguished from the other liquid sounds, even though Gaver, (1993b) would consider them hybrid sound events (liquid and solid, interactions) and therefore different from all other sounds. This protocol of analysis proved. indicated the use of marginal types of similarity, sometimes mixed, to group the sounds of acoustical properties (e.g., crumpling and, walking sounds, Cluster 1), specific categories of sound events, The goal of Experiment 2 was to observe whether the catego-, rization of the sounds made by solid objects would result in, categories corresponding to the different actions generating the, sounds, as assumed by Gaver (1993b).

Overall, we found, fewer categories than Gaver (1993b) did. (1977). This table shows, that the distribution of the lexical forms was primarily related to, the actions (61.16%) and was related to a lesser degree to the, objects (19.51%) producing the sounds. Our statistical analyses were based, on a particular hierarchical cluster analysis producing two dendro-, grams (Hubert et al., 2006), allowing us to focus on more homo-. In W. A. Yost, Lutfi, R.

These two types of organization (one based on a simple hierar-, chical structure and the other on a complex semantic network) are, either too simple to fit our perception of environmental sounds or, too complex and broad to be effective (e.g., in the field of post-, production, a sound designer should be able to efficiently search, sounds in sound databases). In this case, however, the descriptions were associated, Table 2 presents the raw results of the analysis. Our results could be a useful contri-, bution toward an intermediate level of searching grounded in the, physical production of the sounds that relates acoustical descrip-, tors specific to these categories and the lexical descriptions. on March 19, 2008, With v. 104, divided into four independent journals: Journal of experimental psychology: General; Journal of experimental psychology: Human learning and memory; Journal of experimental psychology: Human perception and performance; Journal of experimental psychology: Animal behavior processes, There are no reviews yet.

The different operational processing, stages (from sound encoding to attribution of meaning) not only, form a bottom-up process but also incorporate previous experi-, ences of the auditory world and information from the other sensory, modalities in a top-down process (see also the general model, proposed by McAdams, 1993). Context theory of classification, Misdariis, N., Minard, A., Susini, P., Lemaitre, G., McAdams, S., &, Parizet, E. (2010). Overall, these analyses showed that the participants used, different criteria to sort the sounds. We observed many subclusters for the, sounds of solid objects. (1997) authors proposed a framework for the, classification of environmental sounds based on these two modal-, ities. Content-based. Different categories with clear, boundaries and structures allowed us to perform a textual data, analysis rather than an analysis of the verbalizations in combina-, tion with additive tree representations, which requires more inter-, pretation by the person analyzing the data. For each of these basic events, the author suggested a set of, physical properties that may be perceptually relevant or may, influence perception (e.g., for the sounds of scraping, the physical, The author also assumed that different combinations of basic, events produce more complex events.

Some of the differ-, ences between the results of the aforementioned studies could be, explained by the different emphasis on different aspects of the, Second, different mathematical representations were used. The descriptions of the sounds associated, with each significant main cluster (A, B, C, and D) were automat-, ically split into elementary context units (ECUs). Drioli, C., Polotti, P., Rocchesso, D., Delle Monache, S., Adiloglu, K., Robert, A., & Obermayer, K. (2009). Our aim in this research was to study how listeners categorize, environmental sounds and whether their categorization corre-, sponds with the taxonomy of sound production hypothesized by, Gaver (1993b). goal of this analysis was to produce a semantic portrait of each, subcluster of the primary dendrogram (Figure 3, Subclusters A, descriptions across participants for each subcluster.

We used the second-, ary dendrogram to account for the possibility that some partici-, pants had used different strategies or criteria, which might have, otherwise been masked or considered noise in the primary den-, drogram.
