Perception of quantity in Estonian (Part II)  

Diana Krull & Hartmut Traunmüller

Fonetik 2002, the XVth Swedish Phonetics Conference, Fysikcentrum, Stockholm, May 29 - 31, 2002. Quartely Progress and Status Report (Department of Speech, Music and Hearing and Centre for Speech Technology, KTH, Stockholm) 44: 57-60.


In the experiment reported here, the speech rate of a short preceding or following context was manipulated in addition to that of a V, C or VC-sequence that carried a quantity distinction. The results showed that the durations of the other segments within the same two-syllable rhythmic foot and the presence or absence of a third syllable contributed to quantity perception.
