Acoustics and articulation of Spanish /d/ spirantization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Recent acoustic research has challenged the traditional understanding of the spirantization of Spanish /b d g/. We compare acoustic and EPG results on the realization of /d/ in different contexts. Whereas we largely confirm recent observations regarding the postfricative context, we also show that after nasals and laterals the intensity curve associated with the voiced obstruent /d/ does not offer reliable information on occlusion.
