Abstract

In the present paper some evidence' is given for the existence of a gradual phonetic change in Italian stop consonants from the point of view of their defining distinctive features. The four features of Model (Voicing), Mode 2 (Continuity), Place and Timing are assumed to be perceptually effective and are examined from the point of view of their significant correlation. The experiment used synthetic stimuli for CV groups of phonemes obtained from an acoustic model which allows one to vary continuously the acoustic characteristics associated with the distinctive features that are being examined.
