We have the table of contents for the special issue of Onsei Kenkyuu available now. Lot’s of interesting papers here, so please look forward to reading this one!
Donna Erickson and Shigeto Kawahara have a new paper appearing in Linguistic Vanguard this year. Read it first here!
Thanks to Donna’s research, we now have a thorough bibliography of Osamu Fujimura’s publications available. Click here or in the menu above.
Dr. Erickson gave a talk at Haskins Laboratories on Thursday, June 11th, titled Articulation of Rhythm: A Multilanguage Perspective. The slides include a lot of interesting data on jaw movement patterns in English, Spanish, French, Japanese, and Mandarin, as well as speech produced by non-native speakers. It ties together a few different projects that Dr. Erickson has been spearheading over the last few years, working with EMA data to test the connections between jaw movement patterns and prosodic structure across different languages.
We’ve added two new papers in the Papers for Discussion section. Bridging articulation and perception: The C/D model and contrastive emphasis is an attempt at drawing parallels between the emphasis and pauses listeners hear and the articulatory gestures speakers use to communicate emphasis. A practical guide to calculating syllable prominence, timing and boundaries in the C/D model gives an overview aimed at helping readers who are new to the model use its features in their own research.
Take a look, and please leave us your comments!
We have a new presentation up Donna Erickson: “Syllable triangles, syllable centers, articulatory syllable durations, shadow angles, oh my!” You can get the slides in PowerPoint or PDF format in the Papers for Discussion section.
This new paper from Shigeto Kawahara presents some interesting findings on Japanese—findings that indicate, contrary to the popular narrative, that Japanese may have a form of stress. Read more here!
We’re working on putting together a special issue of Onsei Kenkyuu exploring the C/D model and related research. More details on the project, and how you can contribute, here.
We’ve got a new article up from Donna Erickson, giving her point of view on the C/D model. Spoiler alert: she likes it.
Also, Jangwon Kim from USC sent in a few thoughts to share here:
Here are my thoughts on the C/D model. I could not make a paragraph, but I hope these items are useful for the discussion you will have with other authors of the article about the C/D model.
