Cohésion temporelle dans les groupes C1/l/ initiaux en français

Abstract : This work examines aspects of inter-consonantal cohesion within French word-initial C1/l/-clusters in light of recent proposals of gestural coordination. Based on articulatory and acoustic events, the timing of tongue and lip movements in one subject was studied using an electromagnetic transduction device. More temporal overlap between C1 and /l/ gesture onset as well as /l/ closure period was found for /pl/ than /kl/. Although matching similar patterns of gestural overlap in initial stop-stop clusters, this ‘place of articulation' effect is attributed to low-level motor factors rather than to considerations of perceptual recoverability. An additional analysis of the overall C-centre of /pl/ and /kl/ showed a high temporal stability, confirming a relative constant phasing between initial consonant sequence and following vowel.
