Initial/final lengthening in Italian and Hungarian
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I'm looking for references, unpublished data, etc. regarding the lengthening of speech segments word-initially and word-finally in Italian and Hungarian, having found little so far in the (English language) literature. I'm interested both in production data describing the magnitude and locus of each effect, and in perception experiments on the use of lengthening as a cue to word boundaries.
References to perception experiments on these word segmentation cues in other languages would also be of interest. I'll post a summary.
