In natural running speech postvocalic stød bearing (moraic) sonorant consonants are not—as might be expected from previous investigations—systematically longer across positions than the corresponding stød-less (non-moraic) consonants; therefore, in modern standard Copenhagen Danish, the moraic/non-moraic distinction in consonants is qualitative , not(More)
Three questions in the analysis of Danish stød are addressed. (1) We try and establish an acoustic reality behind a proposed phonological analysis of consonants with stød as long (moraic) in opposition to short stødless (non-moraic) consonants and fail. (2) Vowels with stød are phonologically long; they are proposed also to be bi-moraic, with the second(More)
In the light of previous acoustic analyses of Danish stød and Danish intonation, we discuss two different phonological theories. In one, stød is an autonomous laryngeal syllable prosody. In the other, stød is the phonetic manifestation of an HL tonal pattern compressed within one syllable. The tonal representation is found to be contradicted by the phonetic(More)
In this sequel to Grønnum and Basbøll (2001a) two questions in the analysis of Danish stød are addressed. (1) Vowels with stød are phonologically long; they are proposed also to be bi-moraic, with the second mora carrying the stød. We confirm the acoustic reality of length and a tendency, though only moderate, to acoustic bi-partition. (2) In a perceptual(More)
This is the final one in a series of laboratory phonology experiments which address a complicated issue in Danish phonetics and phonology: the relationship between stød, length and morae. We wished to establish whether vowels with stød can be said to consist of two parts cognitively, a first half with modal voice (no stød) and a second half with stød. In a(More)
