What about the labial anticipation phenomenon when the mouth is coordinated with hand gestures as it is the case in Cued Speech? We tested the rounding anticipation in French [iCny] sequences (Cn = 0 to 6 consonants) realized with and without Cued Speech. We observed that: (i) anticipation increased with the consonantal interval with an expansion coefficient coherent to the Movement Expansion Model ; (ii) there was no difference in anticipation behavior with and without Cued Speech. So the hand action fits well into the mouth action. They complement each other in a pretty well coordinated fashion.
