Design an acoustic phonetic experiment (praat) to investigate differences in the physical parameters, acoustic and perceptual effects of an aspirated [t] vs. a non-aspirated [t] pronounced after an [s]

Design an acoustic phonetic experiment to investigate
differences in the physical parameters, acoustic and perceptual effects of an aspirated [t] vs. a non-aspirated [t] pronounced after an [s]
1. State the research topic
2. State a falsifiable research question related to the topic of your choice and explain how this question is relevant to your topic.
3. In order to investigate the phenomena of your choice, you will need to
formulate a hypothesis. The hypothesis should be stated as: If parameter X (independent variable) changes, it would cause an/a increase/decrease in parameter Y (dependent variable). Alternatively, a null hypothesis can be stated as: Changes in parameter X has no effect on parameter Y.
4. What is/are the acoustic parameters and units of measure you will need to manipulate and/or measure in order to investigate your chosen topic? Explain how these acoustic parameters are related to your research topic.
Course Project Learning objectives: it is a acoustic phonetics course

• to make the connection between knowledge about acoustic phonetics and everyday/clinical phenomena in speech production and perception

• to apply concepts and techniques in acoustic phonetic analyses and experiments

• to design and develop a scientific experiment to test the phenomenon in question

• to predict possible experimental results based on concepts and techniques acquired in the course

• to write a concise report on a scientific study

4. What is/are the acoustic parameters and units of measure you will need to manipulate and/or measure in order to investigate your chosen topic? Explain how these acoustic parameters are related to your research topic.

5. Design an experiment by specifying the procedure (how do you plan on collecting the data?), techniques (e.g. how do you plan on extracting the data? How do you plan on measuring parameter Y? How do you perform data analysis?), and tools (hardware and software used, explain what each tool is used for) used to prove/disprove your hypothesis. Explain the purposes of each technique, tool and protocol.

6. Specify any formula(s) we have learned in the course that you will need to use in your data analysis and explain why you will need to use it/them.

7. Describe the possible results of your data analysis by way of specifying the predicted correlation between parameters X and Y (e.g. Increasing X causes Y to decrease), and explain how this correlation/lack thereof serve to prove/disprove your hypothesis. 8. When your hypothesis is proven or disproven, how does it serve to answer your falsifiable research question?
