7 (cf. 2, Chapter 5, and Chapter 7). The bottom left and the top edge of the stimuli square were based on the spectral and durational properties of natural exemplars of //and /i/ produced by SE speakers. The six vertical steps, which led to seven spectrally different stimuli, were equal on Mel scale (cf. Stevens, Volkmann & Newman 1937). 1335 were also considered and led to the seven duration values in the figure. 8 This research project started in January 2000 and the first version of the article mentioned in the text was written before my affiliation with the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics.

In the next section, I summarize the proposed possibilities for sound representations and provide an attempt to resolve the nature of the targets of speech perception. 2, I discuss the perceptual mapping properties that an adequate model of sound perception needs to consider, given the empirical evidence provided by phonetic and psycholinguistic research. 3, I list the necessary criteria for a unified account of language-specific sound perception that is embedded in linguistic theory. 1 Resolving the nature of sound representation The abstract representations onto which the acoustic signal should be mapped, or their level of abstraction from the signal, seem to be crucial in defining the perceptual mappings needed for language-specific sound perception.
