Articulatory qualities of vowels depending on coda
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am looking for information or references based on experimentation for
the properties of vowels before different consonant sets.
I am interested particularly in an articulatory context, for example:
It is well known that a vowel will be inherently longer before a voiced
segment than before a non-voiced segment. I am interested in the
articulatory reasons for this and other consequences of distribution.
I know that the glottis must fully close before a nonvoiced stop. For the
anticipation of this closure, the anticipation of cessation of phonation,
or both; I am interested on the effects on the end of the vowel -
specifically tongue contour effects (ATR, because intuitively it would
cause retraction) and tongue position in general.
I doubt that the complexity of this can be responded in an email, but
any references to studies of contrastive effects of consonants on
preceding vowels from an articulation (and perhaps, consequently,
acoustic) perspective would be greatly appreciated.
GA and/or RP would be most helpful, but any language or dialect would
suffice for a better understanding.
