Nasalité consonantique et coarticulation : étude perceptive
Tiphaine Ouvaroff, Solange Rossato.
This paper investigates the coarticulation of consonantal nasality from a perceptive point of view. The aim of this study is to determine in CV utterances to which extent the consonant is perceived in the following vowel and compare these perceptual boundaries between oral and nasal consonants. Results show that, although the vowel is actually nasalized (low velum and consistent nasal air flow), the listeners don’t attribute the nasalization of the vowel to the presence of a nasal consonant. After the release, the nasal feature of the consonant is lost, only the place of articulation is perceived until 60 ms after the release.
