AbstractThis study investigated how phonological knowledge and psychoacoustic mechanism interact in intonation perception. In the experiment, Mandarin and Cantonese listeners identified Mandarin statement and question in both unfiltered and lowpass filtered contexts. The results show that the importance of different perceptual factors varies depending on the perception materials. Language background plays an important role even in processing low-level psychoacoustic materials.
