Research on the semivowel by dynamic palatogram in standard Chinese

Yuling Zheng, Huaiqiao Bao

Through the combination of acoustic analysis of speech and dynamic palatogram, researches are done on phonetic properties of /y, w, yu/ as initials and /i, u, v/ as main vowels and transition vowels. This paper points out /y, w, yu/ as initials are of properties of semivowels; while /i, u, v/ as transition vowels still stick to properties of vowels, though they change more quickly and therefore can be called glides.
