A panchronic study of aspirated fricatives, with new evidence from Pumi
Abstract Aspirated fricatives are typologically uncommon sounds, only found in a handful of languages. This paper studies the diachronic pathways leading to the creation of aspirated fricatives. AExpand
Acoustic and aerodynamic correlates of Korean stops and fricatives
This study examines acoustic and aerodynamic characteristics of consonants in standard Korean and in Cheju, an endangered Korean language, and suggests that the fricative /s/ is better categorized as &&lenis'' rather than &&aspirated''. Expand
Variation and universals in VOT: evidence from 18 languages
It is shown that most, but not all, of the within language place of articulation variation can be described by universally applicable phonetic rules (although the physiological bases for these rules are not entirely clear). Expand
