This study evaluates the effects of phrase boundaries on the intra- and intergestural kinematic characteristics of blended gestures, i.e., overlapping gestures produced with a single articulator. The sequences examined are the juncture geminate [d(#)d], the sequence [d(#)z], and, for comparison, the singleton tongue tip gesture in [d(#)b]. This allows the(More)
It has been proposed that when two gestures involving the same articulator are organized with sufficient overlap, the resulting 'gestural aggregation' blends or averages the two movements to result in a smooth, often plateau-like kinematic trajectory (Munhall & Löfqvist 1992). We analyze the effects of a phrasal boundary on sequences of two consonants(More)
