Prevocalic and postvocalic /1/ were investigated in three adult subjects utilizing a combination of electropalatographic and acoustic techniques. Results indicated that prevocalic /1/ was characterized by both alveolar and lateral lingua-palatal contact, while postvocalic /1/ was primarily alveolar contact only. Acoustically, prevocalic /1/ had a lower first formant and higher second formant than postvocalic /1/. In addition, the second and third formants were often weak or absent for… CONTINUE READING
