Perspectives on speech timing: coupled oscillator modeling of Polish and Finnish
2016 (English)In: Phonetica, ISSN 0031-8388, E-ISSN 1423-0321Article in journal (Refereed) Accepted
We use an updated version of the Coupled Oscillator Model of speech timing and rhythm variability (O'Dell and Nieminen, 1999;2009) to analyze empirical duration data for Polish spoken at different tempos. We use Bayesian inference on parameters relating to speech rate to investigate how tempo affects timing in Polish. The model parameters found are then compared to parameters obtained for equivalent material in Finnish to shed light on which of the effects represent general speech rate mechanisms and which are specific to Polish. We discuss the model and its predictions in the context of current perspectives on speech timing.
