Rhythm analysis in Arabic L2 speech

Ghania Droua-Hamdani, Sid-Ahmed Selouani, Yousef A. Alotaibi

This paper investigates rhythm speech metrics in Modern Standard Arabic. The corpus -West Point- includes recordings of native and non-native (L2) speakers. The experiment examines the rhythm metric tendencies of L2 speech using PVI and IM models. The study describes also the application of CCI (Control/Compensation Index) to the corpus. Variation in rhythm metrics by focusing on between-speaker differences such as gender of speakers is also studied.
