Sixth International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
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
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.
