The present study investigated the articulatory control of the German vowel quantity contrast, i.e., the phonological difference between short and long vowels. By means of an optoelectronic system the excursions of the compound lower lip/jaw opening and closing gestures were measured during production of test sentences comprising the target sequence /pVp… CONTINUE READING
