  • This paper is an articulatory and acoustical analysis of the syllable-initial sibilants and approximant in Beijing Mandarin. Palatograms and linguagrams were obtained from young adult native speakers of Beijing, male and female, using the direct method. Results show that the initial consonants which are transcribed in earlier studies [3, 4, 10] as retroflexes [§, t§, 1⁄2( ̈)] are in fact apical or upperapical postalveolar fricative [SÁ], affricate [tSÁ], and approximant [ ̈Á], respectively… CONTINUE READING
