Release Rates for [t] in VCV Sequences Estimated from Aerodynamic Data

Mair, S.J. and Scully, C. (1995) Release Rates for [t] in VCV Sequences Estimated from Aerodynamic Data s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


According to Stevens, "quantitative data must be obtained on rates of release and closure of articulators". Here, we use aerodynamic data in an orifice equation to estimate the rate of increase in the cross-sectional constriction area for [t] in different vowel contexts for 10 English speakers. Analyses of the results indicate that in most cases, the rate of release of [t] is significantly faster when an open vowel follows than when a close vowel follows.
