Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceedingpeer-review


The present study is about the phonetic properties of the West Swedish dialect spoken specifically in the city of Gothenburg, i.e. göteborgska. On the basis of a perception test using synthetic speech the present investigation concerns the distribution of segmental duration within stressed and post-stressed syllables in the task of identifying the West Swedish dialect. In this study I will use the terms göteborgska, West Swedish and the West Swedish dialect interchangeably.
