Hesitations in read vs. spontaneous French in a multi-genre corpus

Jean-Philippe Goldman, Mathieu Avanzi, Antoine Auchlin

This study is a part of an on-going work whose goal is the prosodic characterization of various speaking styles in a multi-genre 70-minutes French corpus as well as the development of prosodic automatic detection tools. In this corpus, a manual annotation prominences and disfluencies like hesitations and syntactic ruptures is used to show evident phonological aspects of hesitation in regard to quality, pause position and proximity to syntactic rupture.

Index Terms. hesitation, filled pause, vowel lengthening, spoken French, disfluencies
