In this paper, we outline some recent developments in the Haskins configurable articulatory synthesizer, CASY. The main advances are the adoption of a conic section model of the tongue body, extension of the configurability of the synthesizer parameters to model speaker variation, and the adoption of a new configurable area function model. These developments allow the system to accurately model the static and dynamic properties of the articulatory process, as well as the natural biological variation in the details of the process.
