The p-centre phenomenon is revisited here under a dynamical paradigm. It is our contention that p-centres can be seen as the projection onto the time axis of an underlying phrase stress oscillator inferred during the realisation of the task of producing (and perceiving) a sequence of syllables in time with a metronome. In this kind of inference, vowel(More)
This paper discusses new inventive methodologies for the classification of speech rhythms. Moreover, it sheds new light in the search for isochrony in speech by showing that fast rates exacerbates the timing characteristics of rhythms, i.e., syllable-and/or stress-timing properties are more easily perceived at these rates. This finding is supported by an(More)
