The acoustics of mangetti dune !xung clicks

Amanda Miller, Sheena Shah

We document the acoustics of the four Mangetti Dune !Xung coronal clicks. We report the temporal measures of burst duration, relative burst amplitude and rise time, as well as the spectral value of center of gravity in the click bursts. COG correlates with lingual cavity volume. We show that there is inter-speaker variation in the acoustics of the palatal click, which we expect to correlate with a difference in the anterior constriction release dynamics. We show that burst duration, amplitude and rise time are correlated, similar to the correlation found between rise time and frication duration in affricates.
