ABSTRACT
Attempts to differentiate between universal phonetic processes and language-specific phonological processes, using cross-linguistic data on coarticulatory nasalization of vowels preceding a nasal consonant obtained across different speech rates in American English and Spanish. Variance in the temporal extent of vowel nasalization with speech rate in American English; Role of different inputs to speech production in the different behavior of nasalization in the two languages.
