Competing proposals on the syllabification of initial consonants in Moroccan Arabic are evaluated using a combination of experimental and modelling techniques. The proposed model interprets an input syllable structure as a set of articulatory landmarks coordinated in time. This enables the simulation of temporal patterns associated with the input syllable(More)
This paper gives an overview of the basic methodological issues relevant to the use of electromagnetic articulography in experimental phonetics. The following topics are covered: measurement principle, sources of error, environmental conditions, combination with other equipment, disturbances to the subjects' speech, safety. Finally, an example is given of(More)
If more than one articulator is involved in the execution of a phonetic task then the individual articulators have to be temporally coordinated with each other in a lawful manner. The present study aims at analyzing tongue-jaw cohesion in the temporal domain for the German coronal produced with the same set of articulators – the tongue blade and the jaw –(More)
The tense and lax vowels of German were compared, based on an analysis of the duration, amplitude and velocity characteristics of lip and tongue movement. This study examined firstly whether they show different patterns of compression over changes in speech rate, and secondly whether velocity profiles would reveal evidence of different underlying control(More)
Inter-consonantal cohesion in French word-initial CC clusters is investigated in light of recent proposals of gestural coordination. Specifically, the timing of lip and tongue movements of C 1 /l/ and C 1 /n/ productions, with C 1 being one of the consonants /p, f, k/, of two speakers were studied using electromagnetic articulography (EMA). In French, C/l/(More)
