Message 1: phonetic differences between men's/women's speech

Subject: phonetic differences between men's/women's speech

I am interested in finding literature on phonetic differences between
men's and women's speech. I would be very grateful for appropriate
references. I am particularly interested in areas other than pitch
although I would appreciate those references as well. I will be happy
to post a summary of material that is sent to me.

Many thanks,

Hank Rogers

Message 2: trills and accents

Date: Sun, 16 Sep 2001 07:55:25 +0800
From: Karen S. Chung <karchungccms.ntu.edu.tw>
Subject: trills and accents

 I'm forwarding two questions from a phonetics student who is not
subscribed to LINGUIST:


(1) Are there languages in which the alveolar trill and uvular trill
co-occur as separate phonemes?

(2) Are people who learn a foreign language after puberty necessarily doomed
to having a foreign accent due to influence from their mother tongue?


 Please reply to: Mia Shen at jaywalkkyahoo.com.tw I'll ask her to
summarize to the list if there are enough replies.

 Thank you!
