How similar are clusters resulting from schwa deletion in French to identical underlying clusters ?

Abstract

Clusters resulting from the deletion of schwa in French are compared with identical underlying clusters in words and pseudowords. Both manual and automatic acoustical comparisons suggest that clusters resulting from schwa deletion in French are highly similar to identical underlying clusters. Furthermore, cluster duration is not longer for clusters resulting from schwa deletion than for identical underlying clusters. Clusters in pseudowords show a different acoustical and durational pattern from the two other clusters in words.
