I learned how to do static palatography from reading Victoria Anderson’s 2008 article, linked and cited here:
- Anderson, V. 2008. Static Palatography for Language Fieldwork. Language Documentation and Conservation, 2(1), 1-27. <http://www2.hawaii.edu/~vanderso/LDC.pdf>
UCLA has a fantastic web resource that shows the step-by-step process for doing quantitative palatography research using dental impressions and measuring mid-sagittal contact.
- (What’s that? Take a look at the site!) <http://www.linguistics.ucla.edu/faciliti/facilities/physiology/Static_Pal/webpal.htm>
No palatography page is complete without mention of the great Peter Ladefoged (page maintained here). His resources and publications guided much of my own fieldwork, specifically,
- Ladefoged, P. (2006). A Course in Phonetics (5th ed). Thomson Wadsworth.
(Note: Kyle Johnson keeps the book current and there is a 7th edition as of 2014)
- Ladefoged, P., & Maddieson, I. (1996). The sounds of the world’s languages. Cambridge, MA.: Blackwell.
I’m sincerely grateful for guidance and support from my advisors at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York, who introduced me to the world of palatography: Professor Juliette Blevins (homepage here) and Professor Douglas Whalen (homepage here).
