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)
After a brief summary of Hans Basbøll's mora analysis of Danish stød, the results of an acoustic analysis of--primarily--consonant duration are reported. 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(More)
Danish stød is a syllable prosody, hitherto described as a kind of creaky voice with tonal side effects. One such is the well established, though not ubiquitous, abrupt lowering of F0 towards the end of the syllable. Eli Fischer-Jørgensen found, in the 1970s and 1980s, a difference also in the beginning of stressed syllables: F0 is higher in the beginning(More)
