    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;We examined devoiced /si/&amp;nbsp;and /syu/ syllables in Japanese to see if their spectral and perceptual characteristic s conform to traditional accounts of speech production as a motor translation of discrete, static segments. Measurements of the lowest-frequency spectral prominences in the syllabic [J] of these syllables showed a spectral coloring of the fricative by the deleted vowel segment similar to fricative-vowel coarticulation in other languages.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Perception tests showed that Japanese listeners can use this spectral coloring as a cue to the identity of the underlying vowel, although identification was substantially less than perfect, varying with the strength of the spectral coloring.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;These results suggest that a supposedly lower-level motor interaction between the fricative and the vowel can occur before a higher-level process deletes the vowel, contradicting the order implied by traditional accounts.&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
