Abstract:
Tins study investigates the occurrence and the production of glottalised stops in German. While the occurrence of voiced, voiceless and aspirated stops in German is well documented, glottalised stops have received limited attention in the literature. The study starts by reviewing previous phonetic and phonological accounts of stop glottalisation in German as well as related phenomena in other lanmges. The focus lies on recent phonetic investigations which represent German stop glottalisation as a means of increasing articulatory ease, based on the assumption that under certain conditions, control of the velum during stop production may be limited.
