Delattre, Pierre
IRAL, v2 n2 p71-97 1964
Phonetic characteristics of English, German, Spanish, and French vowels are compared and contrasted in this third of a series of articles on general phonetic characteristics of American English. Much attention is given to acoustic and articulatory description. Vowel distribution, frequency, and duration are discussed. New vowel sounds for the speaker of English are identified in the other languages. Neutral vowel position, loss of vowel color, consonant anticipation, diphthongization, vowel color and syllable type, attack and release, and nasality are considered.
