The aim of the project is to provide multifaceted description of prosodic phrasing in spoken Czech with regard to news reading, artistic narratives and spontaneous dialogues. The description will include acoustic, phonetic, syntactic and semantic analyses of an extensive corpus of spoken texts. The weight of individual factors will be tested in perceptual monitoring experiments with latency measurements and in computational modelling.
