Statistical evaluation of prosodic phrases in the Czech language

Jan Romportl

The present paper understands prosodic phrases as units which take part in constituting the rhythmical structure of speech. Due to very subjective and inconsistent criteria for the prosodic phrase perception there must be an objectively underlain method for prosodic phrase assignment. This has been achieved by extensive listening tests (103 participants) and statistical evaluation of the acquired data (e.g. maximum likelihood model).
