Abstract This paper examines the articulatory and phonatory strategies used by a German female born without a tongue. Analysis concentrates on the phonetic correlates of dorsal plosives. The speaker uses two main strategies. In word list material, closure for initial /k, g/ is produced using a combination of the uvula, floor of the mouth and adduction of the glossopalatal arches. In other environments, closure is made at the glottis. The glottal strategy is shown to be consistently different from the junctural glottalization used at vowel onset.
