Pauses as Recoding Points in Letter Series

It was hypothesized that temporal pauses in letter series are the major places at which receding occurs, either in terms of a pronunciation code (e.g., VAF) or a meaningful code (e.g., IBM). If pauses determine the units on which receding is attempted, then there will be an optimal and several nonoptimal ways to locate pauses in a given series of codable… (More)
