Abstract : This investigation deals with the production of VCV sequences produced by French speakers, with particular focus on larynx position and trajectory. X-ray data are extracted from a database for four speakers, uttering sentences or VCV sequences at two speaking rates: normalconversational and fast. Results obtained from a frame-by-frame analysis of midsagittal profiles reveal: 1 a high positive correlation between the larynx and the hyoid bone in their vertical displacements; 2 a confirmation of previous findings that the position of the larynx is lower for high vowels than for low vowels; 3 anticipatory laryngeal gestures in both -aCu- and -uCa- sequences; 4 that these anticipatory gestures are resistant to the behaviour of supraglottal structures, and also to speech rate conditions.

Keywords : vertical movement Larynx x-ray data vertical movement.
