In this chapter we are interested in considering production in direct relation to perception. According to Whalen (1999, p. 1257) the relationship between production and perception “has received little direct experimentation and the vast majority of production studies have no measurement of the perceptual effects, except for a check by the experimenter that the category produced was the one intended”. This is not the case with our study, which used spectrographic analysis to investigate the production of stop consonants by a hearing-impaired participant and the perception of these consonants by a group of participants who acted as judges.
