Speaking rate and perceived quantity: an experiment with Italian listeners
2006 (English)In: Fonetik 2006: Working Papers 52, 2006, 81-84 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
We have shown in earlier studies that the local speaking rate influences the perception of quantity in Estonian, Finnish and Norwegian listeners. In the present study, Italian listeners were presented the same stimuli. The results show that the languages differ not only in the relative position – preceding or following – of the units that have the strongest influence on the perception of the target segment, but seemingly also in the width of the reference frame.
