Abstract

Movement data on articulator gestures in West Greenlandic are presented in order to elucidate principles of articulator coordination, especially the domain of coarticulation (as distinct from the domain of assimilation), the handling of conflicting demands on articulators, and the relation of vowels to consonants. The present data are consistent with results previously obtained from Swedish and Bulgarian. The Greenlandic informant varied his domain of coarticulation by up to two phonemes either side of the current phoneme; potential gesture conflicts were resolved in accordance with the model of Kozhevnikov and Chistovich, oncoming gestures being delayed when they were antagonistic to ongoing gestures; finally, articulator gestures were organized according to the same principles for both vowels and consonants.
