    • Gestural delay and gestural reduction. Articulatory variation in /l/-vocalisation in Southern British English 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Scobbie, James M. (Edinburgh University Press, 2019)
      The vocalisation of /l/, as currently observed in Southern British English (SBE), involves weakening of the consonantal tongue tip (TT) gesture. Such weakening can be conceptualised in terms of spatial reduction, where the ...
    • Fronting of Southern British English high-back vowels in articulation and acoustics 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Scobbie, James M. (Acoustical Society of America, 2017-07-31)
      The fronting of the two high-back vowels /uː/ and /ʊ/ in Southern British English is very well documented, but mainly in the acoustic domain. This paper presents articulatory (ultrasound) data, comparing the relative tongue ...
    • Whence the fuzziness? Morphological effects in interacting sound changes in Southern British English 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Scobbie, James M. (Ubiquity Press, 2017-04-05)
      The fronting of the high-back, /u:/ and /U/, as currently seen in Southern British English, is a rare opportunity to study two similar sound changes at different stages of their phonetic development: /u:/-fronting is a ...
    • Gradual or abrupt? The phonetic path to morphologisation 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Scobbie, James M. (Elsevier, 2016-10-20)
      While some sound changes occur in environments defined in purely phonological terms, others may become sensitive to morphological boundaries. In this paper, we investigate the phonetic nature of this latter diachronic ...
    • Resyllabification Reconsidered: On the Durational Properties of Word-Final /s/ in Spanish 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Kohlberger, Martin (Ubiquity Press, 2016-03-16)
      Word-final consonants in Spanish are commonly assumed to undergo resyllabification across a word boundary before a following vowel, e.g., /los#otros/ 'the others' is realised as [lo.so.tros]. However, in many dialects of ...
    • Velocity measures in ultrasound data. Gestural timing of post-vocalic /l/ in English 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Scobbie, James M. (International Phonetic Association, 2015-08-15)
      We propose a new method for extracting dynamic information from midsagittal ultrasound images of tongue shape and location. The method is based on analysing parts of the tongue contour as they appear to travel up and ...
    • Morphological effects on pronunciation 

      Mousikou, P.; Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Turk, Alice; Rastle, K.; Scobbie, James M. (International Phonetic Association, 2015-08-15)
      Converging, albeit inconsistent, empirical evidence suggests that the morphological structure of a word influences its pronunciation. We investigated this issue using Ultrasound Tongue Imaging in the context of an experimental ...
    • Voicing assimilation in whispered speech 

      Kohlberger, M.; Strycharczuk, Patrycja (University of Glasgow: Glasgow, 2015-08-10)
      A large body of literature has shown that phonemic voicing contrasts are preserved in the production and perception of whispered speech. Nevertheless, it is unclear to what extent allophonic voicing is also maintained in ...
    • Manner asymmetries in Central Catalan pre-vocalic voicing 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja (2015-01)
      In Central Catalan, word-final sibilants and stop+sibilant clusters undergo voicing when followed by a vowel in the next word. In word-final pre-vocalic singleton stops, however, no voicing is observed. This asymmetry is ...
    • Phonetic evidence on phonology-morphosyntax interactions. Sibilant voicing in Quito Spanish 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; van 't Veer, Marijn; Bruil, Martine; Linke, Kathrin (Cambridge University Press, 2014-07-10)
      This paper presents new experimental data on Quito Spanish /s/-voicing, which has attracted considerable interest from theoretical phonologists owing to the overapplication of voicing to word-final pre-vocalic /s/. ...
    • Erring on the side of phonology 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Sebregts, Koen (John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2014)
      Speakers of Standard Dutch increasingly realise coda /r/ (e.g. paar) as a bunched or retroflex approximant. This coda variant is categorically distinct from onset /r/ (e.g. reizen), which is typically pronounced as a uvular ...
    • Obstruent voicing before sonorants. The case of West-Flemish. 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja; Simon, Ellen (Springer, 2013-03-02)
      This article reports on an acoustic study of voicing in obstruents followed by a sonorant across a word boundary in two dialects of Dutch: East- and West- Flemish. In both varieties only gradient phonetic voicing was ...
    • Sonorant transparency and the complexity of voicing in Polish 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja (Elsevier Ltd, 2012-07-20)
      Final devoicing and regressive voice assimilation have been reported to apply to obstruents in word-final obstruent+sonorant clusters in Polish. This phenomenon, interpreted as a case of sonorant transparency in generative ...
