Based on the theory of cooperative pronunciation, this paper explores the interaction of different components in children's utterance of zero-initial syllables in Mandarin. It was found that [i] [u] had a " consequent inhibition" on the air flow of articulation in the posterior connected rhyme. The pronunciation air flow of [u] will be affected by the connected rhyme at the back, resulting in "inverse inhibition". The round or spread of lips has a certain influence on the air flow of vowel pronunciation. In the same pronunciation environment, the average air velocity of the final pronunciations is higher than that of the final pronunciations. And the fluctuation range of the average air velocity of the same phoneme in different syllable structure positions.
