Abstract

This chapter explores the possibility that speech is decoded using cross-spectral and cross-modal integration strategies that are inherently synergistic. Combining information from separate spectral channels or across modalities may result in far greater intelligibility and phonetic recognition than predicted by linear-integration models. This is because decoding speech relies on multi-tier processing strategies that are opportunistic and idiosyncratic. Models incorporating synergistic integration are more likely to predict linguistic comprehension than conventional, linear approaches, particularly in challenging listening conditions.
