Articulatory Copy Synthesis: Acoustic Performance of an MRI and X-Ray Based Framework

Christine Ericsdotter

Stockholms Universitet, Sweden

Within the framework of refining an articulatory model, articulatory data were collected using MRI, video and X-ray. A set of two-to-three dimensional rules were derived from the axial and coronal MRI images and applied to midsagittal X-ray images. The acoustic performance of the rules was evaluated by synthesizing observed and predicted area functions.
