Vowel duration and consonant voicing: an articulatory study

Stefano Coretta – University of Manchester

In this talk I will present my PhD project, which deals with the influence of consonantal voicing on preceding vowels. Given the initial stage of the research, I will focus on the relevant background literature, the working assumptions and the research hypothesis. Special attention will be dedicated to the experimental design of this study, which consists of the simultaneous acquisition of audio and articulatory data. In particular, I will discuss ultrasound tongue imaging (which exploits ultrasound technology for tracking tongue gestures) and electroglottography (which records vocal fold activity), and how these techniques will inform my research.
