15th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS-15)
Three questions in the analysis of Danish stod are addressed. (1) Vowels with stod are phonologically long; they are proposed also to be bi-moraic, with the second mora carrying the stod. We confirm the acoustic reality of length, but a moderate statistical tendency only to acoustic bi-partition. (2) In a perceptual experiment vowels with stod were judged to resemble long stodless vowels by eight subjects, whereas eight other subjects paired syllables with stod, irrespective of vowel length. (3) In a visual analogue scaling experiment, 81 subjects were asked to fix the point in time in the vowel where stod begins. They could not.
