--- abstract: |- This paper reports experiments on speech production showing that secondary stress in Brazilian Portuguese (BP) can be best described as phrase-initial prominence cued by greater duration and pitch accent excursion in initial position. It also reports a perception experiment in which clicks were associated to consecutive V-to-V positions in stress groups. Mean click detection RTs are gradient, but show no influence of initial lengthening. RTs near the phrasally stressed position are shorter and almost 60% of RT variance can be accounted for by produced timing patterns. altloc: [] chapter: ~ commentary: ~ commref: ~ confdates: ~ conference: Third Conference on Speech Prosody confloc: 'Dresden, Germany' contact_email: ~ creators_id: [] creators_name: - family: Arantes given: Pablo honourific: '' lineage: '' - family: Barbosa given: Plinio A. honourific: '' lineage: '' date: 2006 date_type: published datestamp: 2007-02-24 department: ~ dir: disk0/00/00/54/05 edit_lock_since: ~ edit_lock_until: ~ edit_lock_user: ~ editors_id: [] editors_name: [] eprint_status: archive eprintid: 5405 fileinfo: /style/images/fileicons/application_pdf.png;/5405/1/arantes_barbosa_speech%2Dprosody2006.pdf full_text_status: public importid: ~ institution: ~ isbn: ~ ispublished: pub issn: ~ item_issues_comment: [] item_issues_count: 0 item_issues_description: [] item_issues_id: [] item_issues_reported_by: [] item_issues_resolved_by: [] item_issues_status: [] item_issues_timestamp: [] item_issues_type: [] keywords: 'speech rhythm, secondary stress, Brazilian Portuguese' lastmod: 2011-03-11 08:56:46 latitude: ~ longitude: ~ metadata_visibility: show note: ~ number: ~ pagerange: 73-76 pubdom: FALSE publication: ~ publisher: Technische Universitšt Dresden Press refereed: TRUE referencetext: |- \bibitem[1]{collischonn} Collischonn, G., 1994.
