The phonetic status of Croatian affricates /ʧ/ and /ʨ/ is uncertain. Traditionally, affricate /ʧ/ is classified as postalveolar and /ʨ/ as palatal, but there is no physiological data to support this classification. Several studies show that postalveolar and palatal affricates are being neutralised in modern Standard Croatian, but the evidence of the neutralisation process is limited. Motivated by the possible existence of a sound change and by the relative lack of articulatory data, our aim was…

Electropalatography (EPG) activities in Japan and the impact of the COVID‐19 pandemic on EPG research and therapy: A report of presentations at the 7th EPG Symposium

In evaluating the impact of the COVID‐19 pandemic on EPG research and therapy, an analytical approach was taken to break down the steps involved in carrying out those activities, and the challenges faced and the possible alternatives for completing the tasks were discussed.

An EPG and perceptual study of the postalveolar and palatal affriccate contrast in Standard Croatian

In Classical Standard Croatian affricates /ʧ/ and /ʤ/ are traditionally considered postalveolar, while /ʨ/ and /ʥ/ are described as palatal. However, researchers claim that a new sociophonetic norm

A model of lingual coarticulation based on articulatory constraints

The magnitude and temporal extent of consonantal and vocalic coarticulation are reported for VCV sequences with two vowels (/i/, /a/) and seven consonants (/p/, /n/, dark /l/, /s/, /∫/, /ɲ/,/k/).

Linguopalatal and sagittal vocal tract configuration data from a large number of languages reveal that the so-called palatal consonants (i.e. [ç ʎ c ɲ j]), as well as the vowel [i], are often

An articulatory investigation of lingual coarticulatory resistance and aggressiveness for consonants and vowels in Catalan.

Lingual movement data for Catalan vowel-consonant-vowel sequences reveal differences in contextual coarticulatory variability in tongue position at the middle of the consonant for p>/n/>dark/l/>/s/>>

Lingual kinematics and coarticulation for alveolopalatal and velar consonants in Catalan.

The lingual gesture for alveolopalatals and, less so, that for velars may exert more prominent spatial and temporal effects on V2 than on V1 which is in agreement with the salience of the C-to-V carryover component associated with these consonants according to previous coarticulation studies.

Using ultrasound tongue imaging to identify covert contrasts in children’s speech

Some of the challenges of ultrasound data collection from children, and analysing these data, as well as possible ways to address those challenges are described, and there are examples from typical and disordered productions featuring covert contrasts.

Classical pronunciation norm, established at the end of the 19th century, bore two names - Croatian and Serbian. Such name was not appropriate for shared Croatian language because it does not unite


Early work under this label typically involved applications of standard phonetic methods to ‘sociolinguistic’ data, such as socially-differentiated corpora of speech, or to non-standard dialects of widely-spoken languages.
