Pausing in Spontaneous Speech

Hansson, Petra LU (1998) In Fonetik 98 : proceedings p.158-161
Abstract
Pauses in spontaneous speech have a freer distribution than pauses in read texts; however, they are not distributed haphazardly. The results of the present study show that the majority of the perceived pauses in the spontaneous speech material, 73%, occur in one of the following three positions: between sentences, after discourse markers and conjunctions and before accented content words. This is a short version of an unpublished paper on pausing in spontaneous speech.
