An Adaptive Dynamical Model of Linguistic Rhythm

Dissertation Work - Indiana University

1. Introduction

my proposed dissertation research which seeks to bridge two areas of research in linguistic rhythm -- work by Ramus and his colleagues on signal correlates of rhythm categories, and work Cutler and her colleagues on word segmentation based on rhythm. This will hopefully be accomplished through a model that uses the former's factors to produce behavior indicative of the latter's reported phenomena.
