|You are right. The characterization that you give is a paraphrase of a classic descriptive paper by Fant. Liberman showed the perceptual effects, and Stevens considered the consequences of the asynchronous correspondence of phoneme segment and acoustic correlates in a feature-based account of speech perception and lexical access.|
Here are the citations:
Fant, C. G. M. (1962). Descriptive analysis of the acoustic aspects of speech. Logos, 5, 3-17.
Liberman, A. M. (1970). The grammars of speech and language. Cognitive Psychology, 1, 301-323.
Stevens, K. N. (2005). Features in speech perception and lexical access. In D. B. Pisoni and R. E. Remez (Eds.), The Handbook of Speech Perception (pp. 125-155). Oxford, Blackwell.
Each of these papers is readily available, I believe.
