A comparative acoustic study of spontaneous and read Italian speech

Emanuela Magno Caldognetto, Claudio Zmarich, Franco Ferrero

This paper presents an acoustic study of spontaneous and read Italian speech based on the analysis of monologues and corresponding read transcribed texts, each produced by three different subjects. The speaking styles were examined in terms of articulation, speech, fluency and word rate indices; typology of pauses and their cooccurrence; mean and range of F0 values; classification of phonetic events resulting from adjacency of vowels situated at word boundaries.
