  1. 1. Articulation in time : Some word-initial segments in Swedish

    Author : Malin Svensson Lundmark; Fonetik; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; acceleration; articulation; articulography; coarticulation; EMA; gesture; phonology; prosody; speech motor control; speech production modelling; Swedish; word accent; tone;

    Abstract : Speech is both dynamic and distinctive at the same time. This implies a certain contradiction which has entertained researchers in phonetics and phonology for decades. The present dissertation assumes that articulation behaves as a function of time, and that we can find phonological structures in the dynamical systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. "Sweetenings" and "Babylonish Gabble" : Flute Vibrato and Articulation of Fast Passages in the 18:th and 19:th centuries

    Author : Maria Bania; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Historical Performance Practice; Flute; Vibrato; Articulation; Double-tonguing; Artistic Research; Flattement; Johann Joachim Quantz; Johann George Tromlitz; Morten Raehs; Johan Helmich Roman; Charles Nicholson; Louis Drouët;

    Abstract : During the 18th and 19th centuries, vibrato as well as the articulation of fast passages was often not indicated in the musical scores, but was left to the players discretion within prevailing practice. A finger-vibrato technique that this study names the flattement technique was the most recommended vibrato technique in Western classical music throughout the 18th century. READ MORE

  3. 3. From Acoustics to Articulation : Study of the acoustic-articulatory relationship along with methods to normalize and adapt to variations in production across different speakers

    Author : Gopal Ananthakrishnan; Olov Engwall; Gérard Bailly; KTH; []

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is the relationship between the articulation ofspeech and the acoustics of produced speech. There are several problems thatare encountered in understanding this relationship, given the non-linearity,variance and non-uniqueness in the mapping, as well as the differences thatexist in the size and shape of the articulators, and consequently the acoustics,for different speakers.

  4. 4. Articulation Rate and Surprisal in Swedish Child-Directed Speech

    Author : Johan Sjons; Mats Wirén; Robert Östling; Iris-Corinna Schwarz; Francisco Lacerda; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; articulation rate; information-theoretic surprisal; child-directed speech; final lengthening; spontaneous; longitudinal;

    Abstract : Child-directed speech (CDS) differs from adult-directed speech (ADS) in several respects whose possible facilitating effects for language acquisition are still being studied. One such difference concerns articulation rate --- the number of linguistic units by the number of time units, excluding pauses --- which has been shown to be generally lower than in ADS. READ MORE

  5. 5. Speech and language in patients with an isolated cleft palate and/or 22q11 deletion syndrome

    Author : Christina Persson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : isolated cleft palate; 22q11 deletion syndrome; articulation; language; velopharyngeal impairment; intelligibility.;

    Abstract : Aims: To study speech with regard to articulation and perceptual speech symptoms related to velopharyngeal dysfunction, intelligibility and language ability in patients born with a) an isolated cleft palate with or without additional malformations/syndromes, or b) 22q11 deletion syndrome (22q11 DS).Materials and methods: Fifty-three patients (aged 3-10 years) born with an isolated cleft palate and 30 non-cleft children participated in studies I and II, and 65 consecutively referred patients with 22q11 DS confirmed by a FISH-test participated in studies III and IV.
