In many languages, voiced segments that occur in syllable codas are systematically devoiced. This article examines coda devoicing in an idiolect of a Central Minnesota speaker of American English. The consonants under investigation are voiced fricatives, voiced stops, and the voiced affricate /dʒ/. The 40/60 threshold proposed by Gradoville (2011) is used as the limen to discriminate between voiced and devoiced consonants in syllable codas.
