AbstractThe study investigated the possible interaction between VOT values associated with aspirated stops produced at six different lexical tones (high falling, high rising, mid level, mid-low falling, mid-low rising and mid-low level) in Cantonese. A total of 27 male Cantonese speakers were recruited and they were instructed to read phrases containing targeted CV syllables formed by the aspirated Cantonese stops (/ph/, /th/, and /kh/) and the vowel /a/ at the six tones. VOT analysis revealed that, across aspirated stops, tones in the upper tone register produced shorter VOT while those in the lower tone register had longer VOT values. In particular, mid-low rising tone showed the longest VOT than all other tones. This finding indicated an interaction between VOT and tone during Cantonese stop production is confirmed.
