  • We investigate the relationship between prosodic phrase boundaries in terms of pausing and the linguistic structure on morpho-syntactic and discourse levels inspontaneous dialogues as well as in read aloud speech in Swedish. Both the speakers' production and the listeners' perception of pausing are considered and mapped to the linguistic structure.
