The present study examines the possibility of investigating linguistic rhythm using movement-based paradigms. Informed by the theory and methods of sensorimotor synchronization, we developed two finger-tapping tasks (synchronization and reproduction), and tested them with English participants. The synchronization task required participants to tap along with the beat of a looped sentence while the reproduction task asked them to tap out the perceived beat patterns after listening to a sentence loop. The results showed that both tasks engaged participants in period tracking of a beat-like structure in the linguistic stimuli, though synchronization did so to a greater extent. Patterns obtained in the reproduction task tended to converge toward participants’ spontaneous tapping rates and showed a degree of regularization. Data collected in the synchronization task displayed a consistent anchoring of taps with the vowel onsets. Overall, synchronization performance with language resembled many well-established findings of sensorimotor synchronization with metronome and music. We conclude that our setting of the sensorimotor synchronization paradigm—finger tapping along with looped spoken phrases—is a valid experimentation tool for studying rhythm perception in language.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Falk, Simone</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Lin, Chia-Yuan</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:contributor>Bella, Simone Dalla</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Lin, Chia-Yuan</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/54038"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/54038/1/Rathcke_2-1x580z78dmrbc0.pdf"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Rathcke, Tamara</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Bella, Simone Dalla</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dcterms:title>Tapping into linguistic rhythm</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Rathcke, Tamara</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-06-21T12:46:22Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-06-21T12:46:22Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/54038/1/Rathcke_2-1x580z78dmrbc0.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Falk, Simone</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
