This paper presents articulatory data on the production of /l/ in
various environments in Dutch, and shows that the direction of
movement of the tongue dorsum varies across environments.
This makes it impossible to measure tongue position at the peak
of the dorsal gesture. We argue for an alternative method in
such cases: measurement of position of one articulator at a time
point defined by the gesture of another. We present new data
measured this way which confirms a previous finding on the
articulation of Dutch /l/.
