CREU 2013 – Fall – Week Seven

October 25, 2013 § Leave a comment

I’ve continued making progress with reading Segouat‘s dissertation and finished his discussion on how the variations in gaze and handshape breakdown by segment.   He divides the different segments of the announcements into categories based on whether they vary between their isolated and in context forms and the consistency of variations (don’t vary, vary but always the same variations, don’t vary or one variation, mostly consistent variations, and variations dependent on context).  The segments with the least variation tend to be the numbers, stations, and platforms.  The segment Segouat classifies as varying depending on context is “votre attention s’il vous plait” (your attention please).  Its variations in handshape are strongly dependent on which context the segment is placed and thus coarticulatory.
