Query:   Dear Linguists,

There have been numerous studies on the effect that consonant types have on
the pitch of a preceding/following vowel in English. For instance, Hombert
(& others) have shown that voiceless stops raise the F0 of a following
vowel, while voiced stops lower it.

Does anyone have any references for these types of effects in other
languages? Or other consonant types?

Full references would be appreciated; actual papers or links to papers
would be greatly appreciated, too.
