In this paper we describe the acoustic properties of voiced fricatives, namely /v/, /z/ and / /, in utterance-final and word-final utterance-medial position in Hungarian in comparison to their voiceless counterparts, namely /f/, /s/ and / /. The experiments presented here are in line with a larger research focusing on the phonetic underpinnings of the phonology of voiced fricatives in Hungarian. In recent studies (Kiss & Bárkányi, 2006; Bárkányi & Kiss, 2010) it has been demonstrated that the double-faced phonological behavior of /v/ in Hungarian can be explained in a model based on the phonetic properties of this segment and its linear context. The analysis is based on the claim that the phonetic targets of /v/ are contradictory on aerodynamic grounds (Ohala, 1983) and can only be maintained in phonetically favorable positions.
