Articulatory correlates of metrical structure: Studying jaw displacement patterns

  title={Articulatory correlates of metrical structure: Studying jaw displacement patterns},

Previous phonetic studies of metrical prominence have primarily focused on its acoustic manifestations, including pitch, intensity, duration, spectral tilt, etc. In this paper we outline our new research program in which we explore jaw displacement patterns as another articulatory reflex of metrical prominence.
