Abstract

Hearing speech in a particular voice is one of the most common auditory experiences that humans have. What can we learn about the nature of auditory experiences of listening to speech sounds in a voice from auditory illusions? The paper addresses this question by looking at four cases of such illusions: (1) the temporal induction illusion in speech, (2) the phantom words illusion, (3) the McGurk illusion, and (4) the voice-over translation experience/illusion. A unified interpretation of evidence concerning (1)-(4) will be proposed. I will also discuss selected consequences for the epistemology of spoken language understanding.
