Acoustic profiles for prosodic headedness and constituency

Uwe Reichel, Katalin Mády, Stefan Benus


We examined American English, French, German, Hungarian and Slovak data with respect to two dimensions of prosodic typology, namely headedness and the existence or absence of accentual phrases. Based on a computational prosodic stylization we identified several acoustic features distinguishing the given languages in those dimensions. The relevant features were integrated to acoustic profiles characterizing the prosody of languages with regard to the selected typology aspects.
