Models for the production and acoustics of stop consonants

  title={Models for the production and acoustics of stop consonants},
  author={Kenneth N. Stevens},
  journal={Speech Communication},
Stop consonants are produced by forming a closure in the vocal tract, building up pressure in the mouth behind this closure, and releasing the closure. Models of the mechanical, aerodynamic, and acoustic events in the vicinity of the stop consonant are described, and examples of calculations of the airflow and of various components of the radialed sound are given. At the consonantal release, these components of the sound include an initial transient, a burst of frication noise, and an interval… CONTINUE READING
