Measurement of temporal change of vocal tract volume during production of plosive and fricative consonants
Tatsuya Kitamura, Hiroaki Hatano (Konan Univ.) SP2012-75
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The volume of the vocal tract of a male speaker during production of voiced and voiceless plosives and fricatives was measured directly
from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. Three-dimensional
cine-MRI data of three-morae non-sense words were obtained by a
synchronized sampling method, and the temporal change of the vocal
tract volume was measured while there was a closure or a constriction
at the alveolar. The results showed that the volume of the vocal
tract for the voiced plosive /d/ increased almost monotonically, and
the volume was larger than that for the voiceless plosive /t/ through
the closure section. The maximum value and rise range of the vocal
tract volume for the voiced plosive /d/ is greater than that for the
voiced fricative /z/.
