Tongue Contact, Active Articulators, and Coarticulation

This paper is based electropalatographic data from Ibibio. At issue is the hypothesis proposed by Recasens [7], [8] that coarticulation varies monotonically and inversely with the degree of tongue dorsum contact. Some support for the monotonic/inverse hypothesis is found, however it is also found some modification is needed in order to take adequate account of the relationship between coarticulation and active articulator.
