Acoustic and articulatory consequences of hypo- and hyper-articulation.

This study examines acoustic features and articulatory strategies of hyper- and hypo-articulation. Experiment 1 examines the production of the "hid" vowel in accented and unaccented words in Australian English, New Zealand English, and Standard Southern British English. Experiment 2 examines flap production in accented and unaccented words in American English, Australian English, and Standard Southern British English. So far, results suggest that speakers target dialect-specific acoustic goals, but use a variety of articulatory gestures to attain these goals.
