The purpose of this study was to quantitatively contrast the articulatory settings of two Dutch dialects. Tongue movement data during speech were collected on site at two high schools (34 speakers) in the Netherlands using a portable electromagnetic articulography device. Comparing the tongue positions during pauses in speech between the two groups revealed a clear difference in the articulatory settings, with significantly more frontal tongue positions for the speakers from Ubbergen in the Southeast of the Netherlands compared to those from Ter Apel in the North of the Netherlands. These results provide quantitative evidence for differences in articulatory settings at the dialect level. (C) 2017 Acoustical Society of America.
