Influence of paralinguistic information on segmental articulation

Kikuo Maekawa, Takayuki Kagomiya

Influence of paralinguistic information upon articulatory gesture was examined using EMMA record of tongue, jaw and lips. The focus was upon the contrast between "admiration" and "suspicion." It was found that previously reported contrast in F2 is related to the horizontal displacement of the tongue body and lip aperture control. These articulatory characteristics were observed not only in vowels but also in consonant portions. This suggests that the effect of paralanguage upon speech production is a manipulation of voice-quality rather than the control of individual segments.
