Abstract

The present study explores the acoustics of/d/in two corpora of Spanish and Catalan spontaneous speech. Three acoustic metrics were developed as indexes of articulatory weakening. The findings suggest that variations in the implementation of/d/result from gradient modulations in constriction degree on a unimodal statistical-acoustic distribution. The preceding segment is a strong predictor of the weakening of Catalan and Spanish/d/.
