3 Results The quantitative framework for comparing vocal tract configurations was used to analyse both static and dynamic aspects of the production of /l/. 1 Comparison at One Time Point A first analysis was performed by comparing the frames where alveolar contact for the production of /l/ was established. The frames of interest were automatically selected by the algorithm. Aiming at gathering initial information on the validity of the method and on the consistency of the productions, the first aspect assessed concerned how multiple realisations of /l/ compared to each other.

The arrows, presented for each value inside the yellow and red circular coronas, depict the direction in which the movement occurred, for that feature. For example, in the diagram presented in figure 2, the arrow depicted for the tongue back shows that it moved forward (to the left) from [a] to [i]. Finally, when cross-comparing among multiple contours, it is also important to provide a measure of the variability affecting the difference data. To that purpose, for each of the difference values, the standard deviation is represented by the corresponding vertex of the orange polygon at the centre of the circle.
