Abstract: A flourishing research area located between social and cognitive psychology investigates the influence of articulation dynamics on different judgments and decisions. The most prominent finding from this research area is the articulatory in-out effect – stimuli with inward-wandering consonant sequences (e.g., BODIKA) are liked more than those with outward-wandering consonant sequences (e.g., KODIBA). This in-out effect has proven robust across languages and contexts, yet the underlying processes are still debated. In the present dissertation, I provide an overview of the in-out effect and its boundary conditions. Furthermore, I elaborate on the three theoretical accounts that are currently discussed to explain the effect: oral approach/avoidance, consonant preferences, and fluency. I summarize and critically reflect on empirical work conducted to test these accounts. Overall, the empirical studies show that none of the three accounts sufficiently explain the in-out effect, suggesting that our understanding of the phenomenon is still poor. I discuss a general framework for further developing the research field on articulation dynamics.
