Czech speech rhythm and the rhythm class hypothesis


Dancovicova, Jana; Dellwo, Volker (2007). Czech speech rhythm and the rhythm class hypothesis. In: International Congress of Phonetic Sciences, Saarbruecken/Germany, 6 August 2007 - 10 August 2007, 1241-1244.

Abstract

While a number of languages have been classified as either syllable- or stress-timed, the case of Czech remains unclear. In this paper we make predictions about Czech rhythm on the basis of our analysis of syllable complexity in recorded samples of Czech. The results on syllable complexity show mixed features. This is reflected in the classification of Czech rhythm using rhythm measures based on durational variability of consonantal and vocalic intervals.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
