The general object of this study is vowel production, specifically long palatal vowels in Swedish. In a cross-language comparison, Swedish has a fairly rich vowel system, and Swedish vowels have some particularly exotic and distinctive features. We focus on three specific issues: the crowding of vowels among the front, close vowels, particularly y and u, the diphthongisation of long vowels, and the special "damped" colour of i and y vowels. The main purpose is to analyse and understand the articulation of these vowels and their dynamics. We will use articulography which provides a three dimensional picture of tongue, lip and jaw movements. Phonetic studies of vowels have been mainly acoustic. Although there are a number of such studies of Swedish vowels, it is not possible to uniquely predict the articulation of a vowel from its acoustic properties. It is thus important and necessary to study the articulation of vowels more directly to get a more complete phonetic description of them. The current project primarily concerns basic research. By using articulography, we will increase the empirical... Show more..

- Mode of collection: Recording
- Description of the mode of collection: The programs cs5recorder, cs5view, CalcPos and NormPos were used in the study and belong to the equipment Carstens Articulograph AG500. The POS files (files with the .pos extension) can be read into the VisArtico program (http://visartico.loria.fr) which is a visualization tool for articulographic data.
