This study is part of a project leading to rule-based speech synthesis
using the HLsyn synthesizer. In HLsyn, stop-consonant releases are
generated by controlling the time variation of a constriction that is
formed by the lips, the tongue blade, or the tongue body. In order to
generate a consonant release that is perceptually acceptable and that
has acoustic characteristics that match those of normal speech, it was
found that the trajectory of the consonant release (cross-sectional
area versus time) had to exhibit an initial rapid rise, followed by a
delay in which the rise was interrupted, followed finally by a final
rise. The burst at the consonant release is...
