Interarticulator Programming in Speech Production

Anders Löfqvist

Lund University, Sweden

This paper presents some issues in interarticulator programming in speech production, using as an example the production of a vowel, a bilabial stop consonant, and a vowel. The mechanism for making the labial closure is presented as well as the control of the duration of the closure. An examination of the coordination of the tongue movement from the first to the second vowel with the lip movements for the consonant shows that most of the tongue movement occurs during the oral closure. Finally, the coordination of oral and laryngeal gestures in voiceless consonant production is discussed.
