ExLing 2010 - Third Workshop on Experimental Linguistics
Based on EMA data, this study investigates timing and magnitude properties of lingual gestures involved in the production of European Portuguese /l/ in onset and coda positions. Syllable position effects were found: coordination pattern for syllable-initial /l/ is distinct from those observed for syllable-final /l/; the tongue dorsum is more retracted in the syllable-final /l/; /l/s in coda showed, for one of the speakers, a reduction in magnitude of the tongue tip gesture.
