Short-term changes in vowel fundamental frequency (F0) immediately preceding (F0 offset) and following (F0 onset) production of voiceless obstruents were examined in groups of 4-year-olds, 8-year-olds, and 21-year-olds. Definitive patterns of laryngeal behavior were observed for each measure F0 was found to significantly lower at vowel offset across age groups, with no significant differences noted between groups, suggesting that F0 offset is simply an acoustic consequence of producing a… CONTINUE READING
