Abstract This paper reports some temporal measurements of glottalic ejective consonants. Measurements of pre-release silence before stops, the time from consonant release to vowel onset, and the post-release silent interval are obtained and submitted to analyses of variance. Also several interesting properties emerge from the study. First, the silent interval between release of consonant and vowel onset is an important factor relating to the characterization of voice onset time. Second, F2 and… 
On the acoustic characterization of ejective stops in Waima'a
Some acoustic properties of ejective stops in Waima 鈂a (an Austronesian language spoken in East Timor) are examined, and other voiceless stop types that occur in the language are compared.

This study investigates the acoustic properties of ejective, voiced and voiceless aspirated stops in Georgian, a Caucasian language, and seeks to answer two questions: (i) Which acoustic features
On the categorization of ejectives: data from Witsuwit'en
Results of an acoustic study of root-initial /t th t'/ for eleven speakers of Witsuwit'en (Athabaskan) are presented. Values averaged across speaker means suggest that Witsuwit'en ejectives have a
Natural Phonology (NatPhon) has been the first explanatory model of sound structure which assigned the central role to functional phonetic principles such as articulatory effort and perceptual

There is a long tradition of phonetic and phonological research on Athabaskan languages, some synchronic in focus, some diachronic. A variety of theoretical approaches have been employed. An
Paralinguistic mechanisms of production in human "beatboxing": a real-time magnetic resonance imaging study.
Real-time magnetic resonance imaging was used to examine mechanisms of sound production by an American male beatbox artist, offering insights into the paralinguistic use of phonetic primitives and the ways in which they are coordinated in this style of musical performance.

Obstruent Voicing and Glottalic Obstruents in Gitksan
1. The main argument of Hoard (1978), "Obstruent Voicing in Gitksan: Some Implications for Distinctive Feature Theory" (hereafter referred to as OVG), centers on the voicing of noncontinuant
