Among the many factors that affect phonetic variation, two of them, low word frequency and speech in noise (Lombard speech), are linked to stronger or fuller realizations of segments. Noise and low usage frequency are both factors that may lead to perceptual difficulty suggesting that the strengthening due to these two factors may be related. To understand how these two factors relate to each other and to see if they play a similar role with respect to suprasegmental phenomena like tone, we… CONTINUE READING
