Syllable Onsets: Clusters and Adjuncts in Acquisition
- Standart TÃ¼rkiye TÃ¼rkÃ§esinin ÃœnlÃ¼ ve ÃœnsÃ¼z ParÃ§a Sesbirimlerini Tespit Etmede KullanÄ±labilecek Kelime Ã‡iftleri. Akı, Serap Karakılıç; Hamza, Fatma Soytürk; Türk, Gülhan // Journal of Dil Arastirmalari;Spring2010, Issue 6, p147
Phoneme is the semantic distinguisher sound that is used to distinguish the words. The main principle of identifying phonemes is that there are semantic distinguisher oppositions. To determine the number of phonemes in a language, minimal pairs in that particular language is analyzed. The...
- SYNAERESIS. BROGAN, T. V. F. // Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry & Poetics 4th Edition;6/2/2012, p1398
A definition of the term "synaeresis" is presented, which refers to the combination of two adjacent vowels that sound as one syllable.
- PHYSIOLOGICAL AND ACOUSTIC CORRELATES OF PERCEIVED STRESS. Gay, Thomas // Language & Speech;Oct-Dec78, Vol. 21 Issue 4, p347
Examines the acoustic and physiological correlates of perceived stress in speech production. Natural consequence of a decrease in vowel duration; Effects of stress on muscle effort; Control of the articulatory gesture for a stressed syllable.
- Syllable structure and extrametricality: A typological and phonetic study. Gordon, Matthew; Jany, Carmen; Nash, Carlos; Takara, Nobutaka // Studies in Language;2010, Vol. 34 Issue 1, p131
This paper proposes a functional basis for final consonant extrametricality, the asymmetric status of CVC syllables as stress-attracting in non-final position of a word but stress-rejecting in final position. A typological study of phonemic vowel length pattern in 10 languages with this final...
- LietuviÅ³ bendrinÄ—s kalbos sprogstamÅ³jÅ³ priebalsiÅ³ palatalizacijos / veliarizacijos akustaniai parametrai. // Man & the Word / Zmogus ir zodis;2006, p65
The article contains an analysis of acoustic characteristics (the duration of the explosive phase, the range and the duration of the parts of the spectrum with the minimal intensity, the localisation of the maximal power, the ratio of summary energy in the range of 1000-2000 Hz and 2000-3000 Hz...
- Syllable length in Latvian and Lithuanian: searching for the criteria. Daugavet, Anna // Baltic Linguistics;2010, Vol. 1, p83
Although the traditional account of syllable length in the Baltic languages confines itself to its connection with syllable tones, other phenomena are also found to be length sensitive. In Lithuanian, syllable length can influence the position of primary stress, while in Latvian it is one of the...
- FRICATIVE AND PLOSIVE PERCEPTION-IDENTIFICATION AS A FUNCTION OF PHONETIC CONTEXT IN CVCVC UTTERANCE. Treon, Martin A. // Language & Speech;Jan-Mar70, Vol. 13 Issue 1, p54
Focuses on the largest perceptual influence unit for consonant perception-identification compared to syllable size and the size CVCVC. Influence of successive speech sounds; Inclusions of vowel context; Variation of plosive and non-sibilant fricative intelligibility.
- EFFECT OF FORWARD AND BACKWARD CO ARTICULATION ON THE IDENTIFICATION OF SPEECH SOUNDS. Sharf, Donald J.; Ostreicher, Harvey // Language & Speech;Jul-Sep73, Vol. 16 Issue 3, p196
Investigates the perceptual effects of forward and backward coarticulation across syllable boundaries. Trend towards fewer correct identifications in the deleted vowel condition; Absence of error response pattern for the nasal consonant identifications; Zero intervening-consonant condition;...
- VOWEL DURATION CHANGE AND ITS UNDERLYING PHYSIOLOGICAL MECHANISMS. Harris, Katherine S. // Language & Speech;Oct-Dec78, Vol. 21 Issue 4, p354
Discusses the relationship between vowel-target format frequency and articulatory stress. Problem of speech production research; Effect of syllable stress on vowel production; Details on the perception of stress in disyllables.
