Cross-linguistic data on coarticulatory nasalization of vowels preceding a nasal consonant at different speech rates were analyzed in American English and Spanish.(More)
It is known that closure voicing during an utterance-initial stop is less likely to occur and is typically shorter than medially. This is because the aerodynamic conditions for closure voicing during utterance-initial stops are less conducive to voicing than those for medial stops, where subglottal pressure is high and relatively constant (Westbury and(More)
