In general, the narrower the constriction, the higher the spectral frequency band of the fricative, and the higher its relative amplitude (TUTORIAL – THE ACOUSTIC SIGNAL, Chapter 1). indd 26 02/03/2011 10:40 ADDINGRESONANCE pressure rises), whereupon they come back together again (because the air pressure between them drops and the subglottal air pressure falls) to interrupt the flow again in a cyclical fashion. g. in Cockney paper [peiʔǝ]). The vocal cords sometimes only partially stop the airflow, as in the voiceless glottal fricative [h] or in whispered speech.

The larynx is therefore a special constriction point in the vocal tract – special, because the vocal cords can be manipulated in a number of different ways to produce linguistically contrastive effects. ARTICULATORYCLASSESÐCLASSIFIEDBYTYPEOF CONSTRICTION In this chapter, we are using classical phonetics as the basis for describing how sounds are made in terms of what we do with the vocal tract to produce them. Classical phonetics did not attempt to get behind the articulation and say something about the mechanisms involved in initiating or controlling how it takes place; we do this in Chapters 3 and 4.

For these reasons the release phase of a voiced stop is a little shorter and accompanied by a lower amplitude of frication than that of a voiceless stop. A shorter release time with a smaller sub-/supraglottal pressure difference means that with voiced stops a stable aerodynamic system is achieved earlier. 3). Theaspirationphase The third of the three phases modelled by classical phonetics is the aspiration phase, which in English occurs only after phonologically voiceless stops. In effect the voiced stops are two-phase since they lack aspiration.
