Speech Prosody 2002
In this study, we investigate the correlation between silent pauses and discourse boundaries in the notion of theme shift. We examine three speaking styles in Swedish: professional and non-professional reading, and elicited spontaneous dialogues. Considerable attention is given to the syntactic and discourse context in which pauses appear, as well as the characteristics of the discourse structure in terms of pauses.
