Abstract

Building on Erickson et al. [9], the current electromagneticarticulography (EMA) experiment proposes that the amount of jaw displacement-or mandible movement-may reflect the metrical organization of English sentences. The experiment also supports F1 as a reliable acoustic correlate of jaw displacement, hence metrical organization. On the other hand, the study also demonstrates that F0 does not have a similar relationship to mandible movement.
