A reconsideration of acoustic invariance for place of articulation in diffuse stop consonants: evidence from a cross-language study

Abstract:

This study explored the claim that invariant acoustic properties corresponding to phonetic features generalize across languages. Experiment I examined whether the same invariant properties can characterize diffuse stop consonants in Malayalam, French, and English. Results showed that, contrary to theoretical predictions, we could not distinguish labials from dentals, nor could we classify dentals and alveolars together in terms of the same invariant properties. We developed an alternative met...
