A study of palatal segments' production by danish speakers

Marielle Bruyninckx, Bernard Harmegnies

Most acoustical researches consider palatality through languages dominated by the palatalization process, like Russian. In this paper, we propose to apply acoustical analysis, adapted to the dynamical character of the palatal sounds to the Danish language, which is exempt from any palatalization process and has no palatal phonemes, except [j]. In all cases, we can observe the setting up of a transitionality marking the acoustical signal in one or several of its attributes. The realizations of the sequences associating the palatal segment with a nasal one offered very interesting results: some particular reorganizations of the time function, which do not exist in Russian, can be observed.
