Using Electromagnetic Articulography with a Tongue Lateral Sensor to Discriminate Manner of Articulation
Katz, William F.
MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the contributions of the tongue tip (TT), tongue body (TB), and tongue lateral (TL) sensors in the electromagnetic articulography (EMA) measurement of American English alveolar consonants. Thirteen adults produced /ɹ/, /l/, /z/ and /d/ in /αCα/ syllables while being recorded with an EMA system. According to statistical analysis of sensor movement and the results of a machine classification experiment, the TT sensor contributed most to consonant differences, followed by TB. The TL sensor played a complementary role, particularly for distinguishing /z/. © 2017 Acoustical Society of America.
