Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

paper by Halle?

Dear Linguist members,

I am looking for a particular paper which discusses the relation between
phonetic features and articulatory movements. I recall having seen it a
few years ago in a journal. As far as I can recall, the paper was
written by Morris Halle. A colleague of mine also remembered the paper
and found a very plausible title but not the right reference. I have not
yet been able to find it. Can anyone help?

author: Morris Halle (?)
title: On distinctive features and their articulatory implementation

Please send suggestions directly to me
