Voice onset time and beyond: Exploring laryngeal contrast in 19 languages

Abstract: In this special collection entitled Marking 50 Years of Research on Voice Onset Time and the Voicing Contrast in the World’s Languages, we have compiled eleven studies investigating the voicing contrast in 19 languages. The collection provides extensive data obtained from 270 speakers across those languages, examining VOT and other acoustic, aerodynamic and articulatory measures. The languages studied may be divided into four groups: ‘aspirating’ languages with a two-way contrast (English, three varieties of G… Show more

“…As noted above, in addition to aspirated and ejective stops, Tsova-Tush has voiced stops (/b d g/, which were not analyzed in this study. Some of the parameters measured here (especially VOT in the negative dimension [6] and duration of the preceding vowel) are certainly relevant to the contrast in voicing. An additional study including voiced stops would be revealing, especially if designed such that the target consonants were to follow both phonemically long and short vowels.…”

“…Sound symbolism within one separate language is a real driving force. It is widely studied in the contexts of phonetics by such researchers as P.Olejarczuk and M.Baese-Berk [6] who study acoustic processes in the Komo language; T.Cho and G. Docherty devoting their research to exploring laryngeal contrast in 19 languages [7]. The problem of sound perception is touched upon in J.Caberelli's works [8].…”

“…The closure lengthens the most. Differences in burst phase may include longer duration and higher intensity that manifests as aspiration (Cho et al 2002(Cho et al , 2019. Longer articulation time is accompanied by larger contact areas and more density between articulators.…”
