This paper proposes a pilot experiment on Korean spontaneous speech. Based on a corpus recorded from a television debate show in which we have clear speech expressions with grammatically correct utterances, and less disfluency, like hesitations or emotional expression. Phonosyntactic approach is adopted for a global prosodic form. 4 grammatical morphemes were collected and measured in F0 variation and duration, and finally they are classified ‘stressed' or ‘unstressed'.

Index Terms: intonation, spontaneous prosody, prosodic structure, grammatical morpheme, stress
