The role of function words in spontaneous speech processing

Project Details

Layman's description

The project involved a number of studies investigating the role of function words in speech processing. Three tasks were undertaken: 1) empirical investigations of the lexico-syntactic form of information units following hesitation disfluencies, 2) investigations of the variation in phonetic form of function words in fluent and nonfluent speech, 3) the design of a pause detector.
