Abstract This study employs a stress priming paradigm to investigate sensitivity to metrical structure in speech planning and production in Australian English. Target words with iambic stress were preceded by primes with either congruent or incongruent stress and also embedded in metrical...
Abstract Phonological models of intonation use abstract categories, such as pitch accents, to build a bridge between continuous modulations in F 0 contours (on the substantial side) and post-lexical meaning (on the functional side). However, recent research on Romance, Germanic, and...
Abstract Even though the outcome of the perception of phonological patterns is categorical, this process might still arise from continuous dynamics. Here, we propose a unified dynamical account of three types of behavior that are usually studied in isolation: short-term perceptual competition,...
