Rhythmic organization pecularities of the spoken text

Elena Steriopolo

Having analyzed various peculiarities of phonetic word formation and speech, we established that phonetic words are constructed according to specific laws. It pertains to the phonetic word formation patterns and the parts of speech adherents of both stressed word and its proclitic parts. The phonetic image of the spoken text description units practically corresponds to the phonetic nature of the traditional concept of word as a lexical unit, containing unstressed syllables differently structured in several hierarchies, and the main stressed syllable, the position of which determines the phonetic word accentual type.
