In this paper, coarticulatory variations were first obtained with a speech gesture coproduction model. Then, we investigated the perceptual effects of the variabilities using stimuli synthesized with an acoustic tube model deduced from acoustic theory, the DRM model. Perceptual tests showed that the ears tolerate such variations to a considerable degree.
