Bladon, A., Henton, C. G., and Pickering, J. B. Towards an auditory theory of speaker normalization. Ethical review and approval was not required for the study on human participants in accordance with the local legislation and institutional requirements. The patients/participants provided their written informed consent to participate in this study. In the remainder of the discussion, we first summarize some methodological considerations based on the present study, and then discuss limitations of our work, and how they can be addressed in future work.
In the present study, we go beyond previous work by modeling the effects of normalization on the predicted perception of both vowel quality and vowel quantity over a particularly dense vowel space. Additional studies have investigated, for example, Dutch (Disner, 1980; Adank et al., 2004), Russian (Lobanov, 1971), and Brazilian Portuguese (Escudero and Bion, 2007). The complexity of the vowel inventories (7–11 monophthongs) and the number of these vowels included in the comparison (2–11) varied across these studies. We add to this literature by comparing normalization accounts against a new phonetically annotated database of Central Swedish (SwehVd, introduced below). With a total of 21 monophthong allophones that vary in quantity (long vs. short vowels) and quality, the vowel inventory of Swedish is crowded compared to most languages previously studied in the normalization literature.
Content: Revaluation Account Vs Realisation Account
However the purchaser agrees to pay within 30 days, the store realizes 20,000 from the sale in the form of receivables. Provides that the purchaser has good credit record so that payment is reasonably certain. Excess of credit side over debit side represents profit will be transferred to
the credit side of Partner’s Capital Accounts.
Some talkers corrected themselves after one trial, others failed to produce the intended vowel altogether. The SwehVd database contains columns for both the targeted vowel category, and the vowel category that the talker actually produced (as annotated by the first author). Prior to recording, participants were informed about the study and given the possibility to ask questions before signing a consent form.
What do you mean by Realisation account?

- Many times, unrecorded assets or liabilities are discovered, which is also entered in the books.
- And to do so, realisation account is prepared, to identify the net profit or loss, which is transferred to all partner’s capital account in the ratio in which profit and loss are shared by them.
- This increase in performance cannot be explained by the small increase in the chance baseline alone (10% for the 10 short vowels, compared to 9.1% for the 11 long vowels).
Furthermore, given that C-CuRE is the only account that applies to any type of cue, we will consider duration as centered to each talker’s mean (for the C-CuRE accounts), or as raw input (in ms; for all other accounts). We evaluate the predicted effects for perception both separately for long and short vowels, and on all 21 vowels together. What does this imply for our conclusions about the relative effect of normalization? To the extent that normalization successfully overcomes inter-talker variability that is caused by gender, age, and other social or physiological factors, we expect that the benefit of normalization accounts should show more clearly, relative to unnormalized cues.
Whenever the firm is reconstituted, it is generally preferred to check whether the assets appear at their current market price in the books of the firm. If it is discovered that the assets are undervalued or overvalued, then these are subject to revaluation. Likewise, liabilities are reassessed, if found overstated or understated, so as to ensure that these are presented at their correct values in the firm’s books.
Partner’s Loan Account
We do not transfer the loan by a partner to the firm to the Realisation account, it remains in its account itself. At the time of settlement, i.e., payment of liabilities, we pay the partner’s loan after paying the outside liabilities but before payment of capital. Looking across columns of Figure 6, short vowels are always recognized with higher accuracy compared to long vowels. This increase in performance cannot be explained by the small increase in the chance baseline alone (10% for the 10 short vowels, compared to 9.1% for the 11 long vowels).
Difference between Revaluation Account and Realisation Account
We find that the same accounts found in previous work to perform well on other languages also perform well for the dense vowel space of Swedish. Specifically, Lobanov and centering approaches—incl. Nearey normalization and C-CuRE normalization—were the top-performing accounts, replicating the pattern found in previous studies on other languages (e.g., Syrdal, 1985; Carpenter and Govindarajan, committed to keeping 1993; Adank et al., 2004; Escudero and Bion, 2007). This result suggests that the (somewhat) diverging results for Swedish in Disner (1980)’s study, were not caused by properties inherent to Swedish, but more likely were an artifact of the dataset employed by Disner. It also suggests that languages with dense vowel spaces do not necessarily require more complex normalization mechanisms.
