San Felipe Jalapa de Díaz (Jalapa) Mazatec is unusual in possessing a three-way phonation contrast and three-way level tone contrast independent of phonation. This study investigates the acoustics of how phonation and tone interact in this language, and how such interactions are maintained across variables like speaker sex, vowel timecourse, and presence of aspiration in the onset. Using a large number of words from the recordings of Mazatec made by Paul Kirk and Peter Ladefoged in the 1980s…

Measuring laryngealization in running speech: interaction with contrastive tones in yalálag zapotec

TLDR
This study proposes a method to measure the degree of glottalization which is robust to variation of fundamental frequency and which, applied to the electroglottographic signal, does not depend on changes in vocal tract resonances.

This paper examines the phonetic interactions of tone and voice qualities in Sylheti. Data from six native speakers are examined to understand the voice qualities of the vowels carrying contrastive

Phonation in nine languages

This study compares the phonations of 9 languages. Some of the languages use phonation types contrastively, independently of any pitch contrasts (Gujarati: modal, breathy; White Hmong and Black Miao:

This paper presents novel data from San Pablo Macuiltianguis Zapotec, a Sierra Juárez variety spoken in Oaxaca, Mexico. This language is ‘laryngeally complex’ (Silverman, 1997), exhibiting both

Acoustic correlates of plosive voicing in Madurese.

TLDR
An acoustic analysis of Madurese consonants and vowels obtained from the recordings of 15 speakers is presented to assess whether its voiced and aspirated plosives might share acoustic properties indicative of a shared articulatory gesture, suggesting that they share a glottal aperture target.

TLDR
Reviewing recent work that examines acoustic data and models of nonmodal phonation in both normal and disordered voice appears to suggest that current models of modal phonations can be extended to include a range of nonMODAL phonation types.
