Starting from spontaneous speech data of the Kiel Corpus, reduct-ion patterns of function words are described, which also incorporate more global articulatory prosodies, such as nasality, labiality and glottalization. The results of 4 perceptual experiments support the hypothesis that these long components of speech production are mapped onto perception. The discussion is also a contribution to a new paradigm for the analysis of non-lab and non-scripted speech.
