Abstract / Description:This paper presents a study on the reduction of word-final [t]s in conversational standard Dutch. Based on a large amount of tokens
annotated on the segmental level, we show that the bigram
frequency and the segmental context are the main predictors for
the absence of [t]s. In a second study, we present an analysis of
the detailed acoustic properties of word-final [t]s and we show
that bigram frequency and context also play a role on the subsegmental
level. This paper extends research on the realization
of /t/ in spontaneous speech and shows the importance of incorporating
sub-segmental properties in models of speech.
