    • Coordination of tongue tip and body in place differences among English coronal obstruents 

      Derrick, D.; Fiasson, R.; Best, C.T. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2014)
      Using electromagnetometry tracking of the tongue, Best et al. (2010, 2014) have demonstrated that Wubuy, an Australian language with four coronal stop places, shows significant differences in tongue tip vs. tongue body ...
    • Examining speech production using masked priming 

      Davis, C.; Shaw, J.; Proctor, M.; Derrick, D.; Sherwood, S.; Kim, J. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)
      The time to initiate naming a printed target word is reduced when preceded by an identical masked prime (match prime) or by one that has the same initial letter (onset prime) compared to an all letter different control. ...
    • The influence of tongue position on trombone sound: A likely area of language influence 

      Heyne, M.; Derrick, D. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)
      This paper builds on initial evidence of First Language influence on brass playing presented in Heyne and Derrick (2013) [13] by indicating how tongue positioning might affect trombone timbre. Ultrasound imaging ...
    • Non-metallic ultrasound probe holder for co-collection and co-registration with EMA 

      Derrick, D.; Best, C.T.; Fiasson, R. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)
      Co-collection and co-registration of ultrasound images of the tongue and articulometry data requires the stabilization of the ultrasound probe relative to the head using a non-metallic system. Audio, ultrasound, and ...
    • On the inter-dependence of tonal and vocalic production goals in Chinese 

      Shaw, J.; Wei-rong, C.; Proctor, M.I.; Derrick, D.; Dakhoul, E. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2014)
      We studied tone-vowel coproduction using Electromagnetic Articulography (EMA). Fleshpoints on the tongue and jaw were tracked while native Chinese speakers (n = 6) produced three vowels, /a/, /i/, /u/, combined with ...
    • Recording and reproducing speech airflow outside the mouth 

      Derrick, D.; De Rybel, T.; Fiasson, R. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)
    • Some initial findings regarding language influence on playing brass instruments 

      Heyne, M.; Derrick, D. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2014)
      This paper presents some initial findings regarding the influence of First Language on playing brass instruments. Using ultra- sound imaging of the tongue, vowel production and sustained trombone notes were compared for a ...
