The coupled lattice and charge dynamics connected with soft-mode excitations are mapped by nonlinear terahertz spectroscopy and ultrafast x-ray diffraction. Sub-picometer lattice displacements induce electron relocations over 100 pm in polycrystaline aspirin and ferroelectric ammonium sulfate (AS). In AS, the electron motions induce a macroscopic polarization switching.
