Voicing in Polish: interactions with lexical stress and focus
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the 18th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences, Glasgow, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
We examine the dynamics of VOT in Polish stops under lexical stress and focus. We elicit real Polish words containing voiced and voiceless stop+/a/ syllables in primary, secondary and unstressed, as well as focus positions. We also correlate VOT with speech rate estimated on the basis of equisyllabic word length. Our results show that the relationships between prosody and VOT are consistent with the status of Polish as a true voicing language.
