The aim of this paper is to analyze speech and articulation rates in prosodic realizations in the linguistic context controlled by the preposition "de" ("of") that links words. The interference of these rates and context on the elision/nonelision of the segments (C) V (C) was analyzed. These data were taken from POBH corpus, standard Brazilian Portuguese from Belo Horizonte (BH).
