A la recherche d'indices de frontière lexicale dans la resyllabation

In this paper, we address the question of whether word boundaries can surface in “so-called” resyllabification in French. Durational and spectral properties of vowels and consonants are compared in 3 boundary conditions: (A) enchaînement (V1C#V2), (B) word initial co nsonant (V1#CV2), (C) syllable onset consonant (V1.CV2). Results show that the sequences with enchainement are acoustically distinct from the others. This suggests that «resyllabification » is not complete in French, and that the surface form of these seq uences reflects cues of their underlying lexical/syllabic structure. Moreover, the data show that lexical and syllabic boundaries may be differentiated by cues on the pre-consonantal vowel rather than on the initial consonant.
