Three-Dimensional Coarticulatory Effects on Spatial Characteristics of Labial Targets for 'VpV and 'VfV Italian Consonant in Asymmetric Bisyllables

Claudio Zmarich, Emanuela Magno Caldognetto


We describe the 3D spatial characteristics of upper and lower lip in the articulatory production of /p/ and /f/ consonantal targets in 'VCV pseudo-words (V: /a i u/). Results will be relevant to the discussion of articulatory production and coarticulation theories, to the cross-linguistic comparisons, to the visual articulatory perception and to the bimodal speech synthesis.
