Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the effects on speech acoustics of a wide variety of speaking instructions that have been used across different studies on clear speech, and to investigate the acoustic and articulatory changes that occur in response to these instructions and in different talking environments. Five young adult females were recorded speaking under different instructions meant to elicit more intelligible speech, and measures of speaking rate, speaking F0 and intensity were found to distinguish instructions to speak "as if to someone with hearing loss" from instructions to speak "clearly" or "slowly", which produced different results from instructions to speak "loudly" or as if in noise. Preliminary acoustic and articulatory data are described for a sixth talker who spoke under a subset of these instructions, and in both a quiet and a noisy talking environment.
