This chapter investigates the cross-language validity of the Movement Expansion Model (MEM) and its developmental relevance. The first part reports on a test of the classical rounding anticipatory coarticulation models with adults from two different language backgrounds (American English and Canadian French). Anticipatory movement patterns were described by means of collecting protrusion and constriction data. A bite-block condition was added to control the possible neighbouring consonantal influence (via the jaw, particularly for coronals) on the time course of rounding anticipation. All speakers displayed a lawful MEM anticipatory behaviour including English subjects who have been reported to display a different rounding behaviour from French or Swedish. The failure of the preceding studies was attributed to a too small protrusion magnitude. The second part of this study reports on a test of the MEM model to account for the evolution of vocalic rounding anticipation in seven French-speaking children (aged from three-and-a-half to eight years). Results showed that the rounding movement timing pattern for the production of the French vowel [y] can be mastered as early as three-and-a-half years of age, and at least by five-and-a-half years.
