In important ways from segment to segment during an utterance. What is clear from this observation is that as far as the articulators are concerned we do not start a segment, hold it and then stop, ready for the next one. The movements of articulators are usually continuous, slow down or speed up here and there, pause briefly from time to time – all asynchronously.
