Speech Prosody 2012
The present work deals with the perception of prosodic structure in conversational speech by naïve listeners in L1 and L2. Native speakers of Russian and French-speaking subjects with high proficiency in Russian took part in a prosody transcription experiment. After evaluating inter-transcriber agreement, we analyse the interplays between the distributions of perceived prosodic prominences and boundaries and discuss the influences of prosodic patterns specific to listeners' native language.
