Quantitative Assessment of Tongue Shape and Movement Using Ultrasound Imaging
Tim Bressmann
101-106 (complete paper or proceedings contents)


This contribution provides an introduction to the application of ultrasound imaging to phonetic and phonological research. Ultrasound allows the speech researcher to visualize a subject's tongue shape and function. The basic technical principles of ultrasound imaging and the specific methodology for speech research are outlined. In particular, methods for static and dynamic three-dimensional imaging of the tongue are described.
