Rhythmic variability between speakers: Articulatory, prosodic, and linguistic factors


Dellwo, Volker; Leemann, Adrian; Kolly, Marie-José (2015). Rhythmic variability between speakers: Articulatory, prosodic, and linguistic factors. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 137(3):1513-1528.

Abstract

Between-speaker variability of acoustically measurable speech rhythm [%V, deltaV(ln), deltaC(ln), and deltaPeak(ln)] was investigated when within-speaker variability of (a) articulation rate and (b) linguistic structural characteristics was introduced. To study (a), 12 speakers of Standard German read seven lexically identical sentences under five different intended tempo conditions (very slow, slow, normal, fast, very fast). To study (b), 16 speakers of Zurich Swiss German produced 16 spontaneous utterances each (256 in total) for which transcripts were made and then read by all speakers (4096 sentences; 16 speaker
