Allongement compensatoire de quelques consonnes par suite de la chute du "e" caduc (Compensatory Lengthening of Certain Consonants As a Result of Dropping the Mute "e").
Lebel, Jean-Guy
Revue de Phonetique Appliquee, n7 p53-77 1968
The effect of a mute "e" on preceding consonant pairs was studied in the oscillographic tapings of the pronunciation of three well-educated Frenchmen. The 68 taped phrase pairs, showing the consonant in a primary and secondary (followed by mute "e") position, are listed. The differences betwee n the length of the first consonant, second consonant, or consonant group in primary and secondary semesters are noted. Taping procedure and statistical testing details are given. Also included are consonant duration tables and oscillographic reproductions. (AF)
