Danielle Duez spent some time in our lab as a guest researcher and kindly
contributed a report on ongoing research undertaken in collaboratlon with
Yukihoro Nishinuma. Her stay was supported by funds from the Swedish

Almé and MacAllister contribute "Labial Co-articulati on in Stutterers and Normal Speakers: a Pilot Study" which they presented at "Speech Motor Dynamics in Stuttering" held at Nimegen, Holland in June 1985. This paper will appear in the publication from this conference.

The remaining papers have been submitted to the editors of the proceedings from a Swedish-French symposium held in April of 1985. Financial support for the Swedish participants of this meeting was obtained from STU (The Swedish Board of Technical Development) and from Association FrancoSuedoise pour la Recherche. We gratefully acknowledge the warm welcome and hospitality we enjoyed with our French hosts.
