C1: Information Density and the Predictability of Phonetic Structure

Project C1 addresses the relation between information density and linguistic encoding in phonetics and human speech processing. In the second funding period, an elaborate account of the prosodic hierarchy and its interaction with the ID profile of utterances will be implemented. The project will also investigate effects of channel characteristics and audience design on production and perception. With respect to methodology, the project will develop a procedure for evaluating the contribution of phonetic features to the informativity of linguistic units and investigate the combination of language models across different linguistic levels.
