 Title: Idiomatic or literal? Production of collocations in German read speech Author(s): Zimmerer, FrankBrandt, ErikaAndreeva, BistraMöbius, Bernd Editor(s): Klessa, KatarzynaBachan, JolantaWagner, AgnieszkaKarpiński, MaciejŚledziński, Daniel Language: English Title: Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Speech Prosody Startpage: 428 Endpage: 432 Publisher/Platform: Speech Prosody Special Interest Group Year of Publication: 2018 Place of publication: Urbana Title of the Conference: Speech Prosody 2018 Place of the conference: Poznań, Poland Publikation type: Conference Paper Abstract: Collocations have been identified as an interesting field to study the effects of frequency of occurrence in language and speech. We report results of a production experiment including a duration analysis based on the production of collocations. The collocations occurred in a condition where the phrase was produced with a literal meaning and in another condition where it was idiomatic. A durational difference was found for the collocations, which were reduced in the idiomatic condition. This difference was also observed for the function word \textit{und} (and') in collocations like \textit{Mord und Totschlag} (murder and manslaughter'). However, an analysis of the vowel \textipa{/U/} of the function word did not show a durational difference. Some explanations as to why speakers showed different patterns of reduction (not all collocations were produced with a shorter duration in the idiomatic condition by all speakers) and why not all speakers use the durational cue (one out of eight speakers produced the conditions identically) are proposed.
