Laryngeal movements and speech rate: an x-ray investigation

Béatrice Vaxelaire, Rudolph Sock

This is an investigation on the production of VCV sequences with special emphasis on the displacement of the unit larynx-hyoid bone. X-ray data obtained for two subjects at two speaking rates show: that there is a positive correlation between the displacement of the larynx and that of the hyoid bone; that larynx position is lower for high vowels compared with their lower counterparts; that the larynx adopts a higher initial position in fast speech. Varying speech rate allows to uncover robust laryngeal trajectories underlying the production of these VCV sequences.
