Metrical Structure and Jaw Displacement: An Exploration

The current experiment using EMA shows that the amount of jaw displacementor mandible movement may reflect the metrical organization of English sentences. The experiment also supports F1 as a reliable acoustic correlate of jaw displacement, hence metrical organization, but also demonstrates that F0 does not have a similar relationship to mandible movement.
