The effect of vowel height on Voice Onset Time in stop consonants in CV sequences in spontaneous Danish

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Voice onset time has been reported to vary with the height of vowels following the stop consonant. This paper investigates the effects of vowel height on VOT in Danish CV sequences with stop consonants in Danish spontaneous speech. A significant effect of vowel height on VOT was found in the unaspirated stops [b d g], but not in the aspirated stops [p t k]. This is contrary to previous findings.
