Title: Effects of Prosody on Articulation in English
Written By: Taehong Cho
Series Title: Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics

Effects of Prosody on Articulation in English gives a comprehensive account of effects of prosody on articulation in English in terms of prosodically-conditioned articulatory strengthening. It investigates how phonetic realizations are conditioned by various prosodic conditions (i.e., sentence stress, level of prosodic domains, position-in-domain), by examining articulation in three prosodically strong locations: accented syllables, domain-initial positions, and domain-final positions. In particular, this book aims to understand how articulatory strengthening that may arise from these prosodically strong locations is manifested in the articulatory maximum positions, V-to-V coarticulation, movement kinematics, and mass-spring dynamical parameter settings. Effects of Prosody on Articulation in English will be of interest to researchers and students of prosody, phonetics, laboratory phonology, phonetics-phonology interface, and phonetics-prosody interface.
