This study deals with the syllable as a reliable unit to distinguish between ‘glides’ and vowels. Starting from a gestural framework implemented in an articulatory speech synthesizer we generated stimuli varying from syllabic to non-syllabic /i/sounds in prevocalic pos itions of German. Avoiding qualitative effects we reduced the corresponding vocalic gestures in their magnitude by manipulating the gestural eigenperiod which controls the velocity of the gesture-executing articulator towards its…

A Gestural Production Model and Its Application to Reduction in German
TLDR
A quantitative speech production model has been computer-implemented based on specifications of gestures as its input, and it still assumes a critically damped linear second-order system.
Articulatory Phonology: An Overview
TLDR
It is suggested that the gestural approach clarifies the understanding of phonological development, by positing that prelinguistic units of action are harnessed into (gestural) phonological structures through differentiation and coordination.
