Metrical Segmentation in Dutch: Vowel Quality or Stress?
Quene, Hugo; Koster, Mariette L.
Language and Speech, v41 n2 p185-202 Apr-Jun 1998
Examines metrical segmentation strategy in Dutch. The first experiment shows that stress strongly affects Dutch listeners' ability and speed in spotting Dutch monosyllabic words in disyllabic nonwords. The second experiment finds the same stress effect when only the target words are presented without a subsequent syllable triggering segmentation. (Author/JL)
