In this paper a method for three-dimensional modeling of the human vocal tract based on T1-weighted MRI data sets is introduced. This includes the reconstruction of the vocal tract shape and the computation of the vocal tract midline. Reconstruction of the vocal tract shape is realized by three-dimensional region growing within the vocal tract after teeth(More)
For the speech ability assessment of glossectomee patients, dynamic MRT was used in order to obtain real time imaging of articulatory movements. At the present state, the method is best suited for continuous consonants, but it can be used for the evaluation of any speech sound. In this study, pre-and postoperative consonant articulation of eight patients(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 consonants [s, f, t, d, n, l], i.e., consonants produced with the same set(More)
between Scottish and Southern British English speaking participants. Each session involves synchronized recordings of both EMA and acoustic data, and includes 30-60 minutes of speech. The corpus will be available in Sept. 2010 via a web-based, searchable archive system. Monologue Story reading (Comma Gets a Cure, McCullough,Somerville & Honorof 2000),(More)
The German sibilant /∫/ is produced with a constriction in the postalveolar region and often with protruded lips. By covarying horizontal lip and tongue position speakers can keep a similar acoustic output even if the articulation varies. This study investigates whether during two weeks of adaptation to an artificial palate speakers covary these two(More)
