Locus equation pour les consonnes /b/, /d/ et /x/ du vietnamien
Eric CASTELLI, Anne HIERHOLTZ.
Locus equation measurements are one approach used to characterise vocal tract resonances during stop consonant production, the place of articulation of the consonant and the nature of the vowel-consonant transition. Taking up again previous literature studies, the aim of the present work is to applying locus equation measurements to Vietnamese language, for two stop voiced consonants /b/ and /d/, and for the specific velar voiced fricative consonant //. Because Vietnamese is a tonal language, a specific corpus was built, in order to avoid as much as possible tonal co-articulation effects. We also take into account the two specific vowels that present dynamic characteristics. Comparisons with other languages are given at the end of this study.
