Abstract

Ongoing research to identify phones and measure their durations in recordings of read speech has resulted in the analysis of 10,300 phones produced by six talkers. The texts, the marking technique and some preliminary results were reported previously [2]. This report extends the earlier findings and tests for the presence of well-established durational cues cited in the literature. The analysis found, in general, that most of the cited effects are not dearly evident in continuous (read) speech signals. Some findings to be discussed are (a) completeness of stops; (b) stop variation in context; and (c) vowel lengthening.
