The aim of the present study is to capture the variation of continuous phonetic parameters associated with distinct phonological syllable organisations in Tashlhiyt Berber and Polish. In a first step, we investigate stability patterns for simple and complex onset coordination based on EMA data. In a second step, we test the degree of perturbation of the stability patterns under variation of phonetic parameters in a simulation task. While Tashlhiyt shows a clear simple onset parse across all…

Syllabification in Moroccan Arabic: evidence from patterns of temporal stability in articulation*
TLDR
Support is provided for the broad hypothesis that syllable structure is reflected in patterns of temporal stability and contributes analytical tools to evaluate competing theories on the basis of these patterns.
Quantitative Evaluation of Competing Syllable Parses
TLDR
Computational tools for evaluating competing syllabic parses of a phonological string on the basis of temporal patterns in speech production data are developed by constructing models linking syllable parses to patterns of coordination between articulatory events.

Abstract Two approaches to seeking stable patterns in the gestural organization of speech are examined: local organization (individual gestures coordinated with other individual gestures) and global

Timing of German onset and word boundary clusters
Abstract Previous studies suggest that there are special timing relations in syllable onsets. The consonants are assumed to be timed, on the one hand, with the vocalic nucleus and, on the other hand,
Gestural Coordination in Tashlhiyt Syllables
TLDR
The timing of consonants in word initial clusters in relation to a gestural target in the syllable coda provided evidence for non-branching onsets only and both for target words containing a vocoid and for those with a non-vocoid nucleus.
Temporal organization of complex onsets and codas in American English: testing the predictions of a gestural coupling model.
TLDR
These results support the competitive coupling model hypothesized for complex onsets, a model according to which consonant gestures in onsets are each coupled in-phase to the vowel, and antiphase with each other.

A theory is presented that claims the basis for syllable structure is to be found in the modes of a system of coupled oscillators that control intergestural timing in speech. Onsets correspond to the
