Tashlhiyt Berber has contrastive singleton and lexical geminate consonants in all positions. In addition, it has two types of phonologically derived geminates: concatenated and assimilated ones. Within CV phonology, geminates, including post-lexical ones, are represented as single melodic units associated to two prosodic positions. This study examines the way these abstract autosegmental representations are reflected in the phonetic details of speech production. In particular, it investigates… Expand

The timing of geminate consonants
In current phonological theory, geminate consonants are distinguished from non-geminates by a difference in units on the timing tier in an autosegmental representation, other features being the same;Expand
THE PHONETIC REALIZATION OF SINGLETON-GEMINATE CONTRASTS IN THREE LANGUAGES OF INDONESIA
This paper examines the timing properties of singletongeminate contrasts in three Austronesian languages of Indonesia: Buginese, Madurese and Toba Batak. This study details the hitherto poorlyExpand
Acoustical and perceptual study of gemination in Italian stops.
TLDR
It was found that the significant lengthening of consonant was only partially compensated by the shortening of the previous vowel and by a small lengthening of the geminate utterance with respect to the nongeminate one, suggesting that speakers follow a sort of timing (rhythm) which is fixed in duration and depends on the number of syllables in the word.

Phrase-Initial Geminate Stops: Articulatory Evidence for Phonological Representation
Swiss German dialects have contrastive singleton and geminate voiceless stop consonants in all word positions. This contrast is acoustically manifested in short and long closure duration, whichExpand
On the phonetics of geminates: evidence from Cypriot Greek
TLDR
This paper examines the acoustic correlates of the geminate consonants of Cypriot Greek and finds that for the segments whose duration can be most easily prolonged the most robust and consistent cue to gemination is length. Expand
Phonetics and Phonology of Tense and Lax Obstruents in German
TLDR
This book claims that the Jakobsonian feature tense was rejected prematurely, and it is shown that tense and voice differ in their invariant properties and basic correlates, but that they share a number of other correlates, including F0 onset and closure duration. Expand
Phonetic Explanation in Phonology: The Feature Fortis/Lenis
TLDR
The incorporation of the time dimension into phonology is regarded as a necessary prerequisite to the solution of phonological problems in general and to an adequate treatment of the [ ± voiced] feature in particular, voice onset time being only one temporal aspect. Expand
The perception of word-initial consonant length: Pattani Malay *
The most salient physical manifestation of phonemically distinctive consonant length is the duration of the closure or constriction of the short consonant relative to that of its long counterpart.Expand
