Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ...sounds produced by this speaker; (2) the vibrations of 2.5 are followed by two vibrations of 2.3 and 2.1 respectively and then by the vibrations of the u beginning with a cord tone of 6.3 and a resonance tone of 1.9; the tone of 2.5 thus leads rather to the resonance tone of the u and could with hardly any possibility be considered as a cord tone with an instantaneous drop of three octaves. These results do not agree with the view that the first sound of who Zl is a voiceless form of u. The sound h is usually said to arise from the breath passing through the mouth already adjusted to the following vowel, the cords being open and the resonance tone alone being heard. In the opinion of some authorities, h has the same position as the beginning of the following vowel. Most later observers have adopted the same view. According to this view we cannot speak of a single h but must suppose for each vowel a corresponding /z: h, hi, h, If, /z," etc., each of which has an adjustmentof the mouth like that of the corresponding vowel and differs from that vowel only in having a noise from the cords instead of a tone. Our h combines a noise from the cords (and subsidiarlya noise in the mouth-cavity) with the mouth position of a vowel. The common element in h, /1, h, etc., does not lie in the vocalic position of the mouth-cavity, which is really different, but in the larynx at the vocal cords, whose position is here a peculiar one, different from 1Taittiriya Pralicakhya, ii 47, ed. by VVHITNEY, journ.
