Electropalatography (EPG) is a technique used to monitor contacts between the tongue and hard palate, particularly during articulation and speech. A custom-made artificial palate is molded to fit against a speaker's hard palate. The artificial palate contains electrodes exposed to the lingual surface.

An Electropalatography ( EPG for short or also termed palatometer in the US) is an instrument that records the timing and location of tongue contact with the hard palate during the speech. The technique requires the speaker to wear an artificial palate that is molded to fit the roof of the mouth. Tongue-palate contact is recorded by a number of silver or gold contacts located on the lingual surface of this artificial palate (also termed pseudopalate).
