This paper presents the effect of phrase length and speech rate on prosodic phrasing in Korean. A passage consisting of 188 words was modified to include 220 words without affecting the meaning. Fourteen Korean speakers read the passage at normal and fast rates. Results show that the Korean AP includes 5 or fewer syllables at normal rate, but can include up to 7 syllables at fast rate. However, its effect is adjusted by other factors such as speech rate and semantic factors.
