Are articulatory commands organized in terms of phonemes, syllables or others phonetic units ? We attempt to examine this question by modeling articulatory movements with the help of an LPC method where the excitation source is represented by a multi-pulse sequence. Our results deviate from the traditional phonemic-concatenation theory and favor that the elementary gesture in speech production corresponds to the syllabic gesture.
