In this study, statistical analysis is used to investigate nasal coda loss in spoken Standard Chinese. In order to find out the factors that influence nasal coda loss, we take into account the segmental and supra-segmental features and their interactions. We find out that articulation manner, post nasal coda boundary and tone influenced the nasal coda loss significantly, the interaction between tone and stress, tone and post boundary, articulation manner and tone are significant too.
