The durational patterns of short and long vowels and consonants were investigated at the segmental and lexical level using variable syllable structures in Japanese and Finnish. The results showed that the Japanese segmental ratios between short and long in both vowels and consonants were longer than those of Finnish only when all segments were pooled. However, this was not necessarily true when observing their positions in different structures. Compared the lexical increase ratios based on the…

A cross-linguistic study of vowel quantity in different word structures: Japanese, Finnish and Czech
TLDR
The durational patterns between short and long vowels were investigated at the segmental and lexical level using four different word structures in Japanese, Finnish and Czech to confirm that the Japanese segmental ratios were longer than in Finland and Czech.
Durational Variability of Vowel Quantity Boundary for Japanese , Finnish and Czech Speakers in Perception
The discrimination tests were conducted at the word level to study the durational variability of vowel quantity boundary in perception, utilising disyllabic synthetic nonsense words. Four kinds of
Lexical quantity in Japanese and Finnish
Despite the fact that Finnish and Japanese differ from each other typologically, remarkable similarities between them can be heard. The most obvious common phonetic feature may be the linguistically
Maximum short quantity in Japanese and finish in two perception tests with F0 and db variants
TLDR
The results showed that the short vowels/consonants in the two perception tests were longer than in the production tests and there was a correlation in some cases between perception and production.
