V, as well as the absolute mean duration of the two fricatives were also significantly different. The quality of the vowel (i vs. á in our experiment) did not influence the absolute duration of the fricative: after both i and á the constriction interval of f was always longer than that of v. Similarly, we found the vowel plus sonorant interval to be always shorter before f than before v regardless whether the vowel was i or á. Lastly, the ratio between the vowel+sonorant duration and the duration of the constriction phase of the fricatives was also found to be significantly different in f- vs.
