Abstract

The reliability of pausing as a correlate to prosodic, syntactic and discourse units has been debated in commonly-studied languages.  The question explored in this study is what role (syntactic, prosodic, narrative) does pausing play in one St’át’imcets narrative. Results suggest that pausing is a correlate to discourse and prosodic units rather than syntactic ones.
