We investigate two contexts for vowel reduction, unstressed syllables and syllables in polysyllabic words. In a production experiment, a large sample of speakers from Tuscany read di- and trisyllabic target words with different stress placement in a sentence context. Results showed vowel reduction in unstressed syllables, both in terms of duration and spectral quality as well as polysyllabic shortening (without spectral reduction). These temporal adjustments are of similar magnitude as reported for stresstimed languages. Results of a two-alternative forced choice task, however, showed little sensitivity to temporal patterns in monosyllabic fragments. Hence, production patterns appear to be more stress-timed than perceptual mechanisms which has implications for duration models in speech synthesis.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Proceedings of the 12th Annual Conference of the International Speech Communication Association (Interspeech 2011) ; 27-31 August 2011, Florence, Italy / International Speech Communication Association. - S. 2697-2700</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Braun, Bettina</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/18874/1/Braun_Italian_OCR.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Braun, Bettina</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/18874/1/Braun_Italian_OCR.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Geiselmann, Sabine</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Italian in the no-man's land between stress-timing and syllable-timing? : Speakers are more stress-timed than listeners</dcterms:title> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dc:contributor>Geiselmann, Sabine</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-04-03T05:49:42Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/18874"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
