A perceptual bridge between coronal and dorsal /r/
2007 (English)In: Experimental approaches to phonology, Oxford University Press, Oxford , 2007, 175-191 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
A possible perceptual basis for change between coronal and dorsal rhotics was examined. An approximant /r/ continuum was synthesized with F2 and F3 ranging from ‘velar’ to ‘alveolar’ values. Listener responses indicated that the observed region was articulatorily ambiguous. It may, thus, constitute a perceptual bridge between coronal and dorsal rhotics, i.e., a perceptual basis for potential sound change.
