  title={Amplitude and F0 as acoustic correlates of Kelantan Malay word-initial geminates},
  author={Mohd Hilmi Hamzah and J. Fletcher and J. Hajek},
This study examines the degree to which differences in amplitude and F0 can mark the word-initial singleton/geminate contrast in Kelantan Malay (KM). RMS amplitude and F0 values were measured for several consonant groups in utterance-initial and -medial positions. Results indicate that the contrast is reflected in systematic differences in the amplitude and F0 at the beginning of the following vowel. The findings support the view that, besides being primarily characterized by durational… Expand
