Thinking Soap but Speaking ‘Oaps’. the Sound Preparation Period: Backward Calculation from Utterance to Muscle Innervation

In this article’s model—on speech and on speech errors, dyscoordinations, and disorders—, the time-course from the muscle innervation impetuses to the utterance of sounds as intended for canonical speech sound sequences is calculated backward. This time-course is shown as the sum of all the known physiological durations of speech sounds
