Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine differences in selected aeromechanical characteristics of the bilabial stop consonants ([p],[pʰ], [b], and [bʰ]) of the Hindi language. The five aeromechanical measures used were intraoral pressure, peak oral air flow, mid-vowel flow, duration of lip closure, and voice onset time (VOT). Significant differences were found for all five measures. Significant gender differences also were noted in intraoral pressure, peak oral air flow, and mid-vowel flow.
