This paper presents an articulatory modeling of the
alternation between Romanian diphthong ea and
unstressed vowel e, starting from the hypothesis
that the representation of Romanian diphthongs is
that of two vowels synchronously coordinated.
Stimuli are created to examine the effect of this
synchronous coordination in the absence of stress,
and two perceptual experiments show that
synchronously coordinated vowels [e] and [a]
result in the percept of an [e]-like blended vowel –
the same outcome as reported in Romanian
phonological alternations.
