- This paper aims at analyzing the contact between tongue and hard palate during production of Mandarin Chinese consonants by means of Electropalatograph (EPG). Their tongue characteristics of onset are obtained: plosives have tongue-palate contact mainly in anterior, and completely block involve more contact during production; under the same manner of place, affricates involve more contact than fricatives; laterals concentrate their tongue-palate contacts on alveolar and anteriority, resulting high anteriority and centrality; nasal involve alveolar contact with high anteriority and centrality but low posteriority. Using EPG to record the contact state of pronunciation can help recording and describing voice more objectively and more precisely, enriching and modifying some interpretation and theory.
