Articulatory studies in Hungary – past, present and future


Articulatory studies performed in Hungary date back to the sixties, when different methods were applied for the description of the segment inventory of Hungarian and various other languages (e.g. Russian, German, English, Polish). Palato- and linguography, labiography, and X-ray were used in the analyses of both typical and atypical speech. However, coarticulation, which requires dynamic methods, was not analysed until recently, when the suitable tools and methods, electromagnetic articulography, ultrasound tongue imaging and electroglottography became also available in Hungary. The paper presents an overview of the main issues of articulatory studies on Hungarian in the past and the present. It summarizes the main findings from some studies on gemination and degemination, transparent vowels, phonatory characteristics of emotion, and gives a couple of examples of possible and future applications.
