Some evidence on the phonetics and phonology of prosodic phrasing in Russian

Irina Nesterenko, Pavel Skrelin

This paper treats the issue of prosodic segmentation into phrasing domains in Russian and is framed in the prosodic phonology paradigm. Distributions of prosodic boundaries are obtained in a perception experiment and the results are further explored to advance the hypotheses about the levels of prosodic constituency in Russian. The temporal organisation of the perceived domains and the eurhythmic constraints on phrasing are investigated. Particularly, the empirical data suggest that beyond the level of intonational units, there are two other levels, a level of metrical domain and one of phonological phrase, relevant in the perception of phrasing patterns.
