This videotape will present a demonstration of electropalatography (EPG). EPG uses a thin acrylic pseudopalate embedded with contact-sensitive electrodes to measure tongue--palate contact during speech movements. Its applications are far reaching. Two major applications are its use in examining coarticulatory effects in speech and as a biofeedback tool for speech disorders.
