  • González Fuente, Santiago; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Noveck, Ira A. (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    Research on verbal irony has found that prosodic features such as pitch range expansion, syllable lengthening, and specific intonational contours are common prosodic resources that languages use to mark irony in speech. ...
  • Ortega-Llebaria, Marta; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (SAGE Publications, 2011)
    The general literature on the phonetic correlates of stress agrees that duration, and in stress accent languages, F0 are consistent correlates of stress. However, the role of amplitude changes in the speech signal is more ...
  • Borràs Comes, Joan Manel, 1984-; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (De Gruyter, 2013)
    One of the challenges of child language research is to identify the relevant factors that play a role in the acquisition course of a particular linguistic feature. This article analyzes the role of stress, word position, ...
  • Thorson, Jill C.; Borràs Comes, Joan Manel, 1984-; Crespo Sendra, Verònica; Vanrell, Maria del Mar; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (De Gruyter, 2014)
    This study investigates the link between interrogative intonation and meaning in child-directed speech (henceforth CDS) and how this is reflected in the early development of yes-no-interrogatives of Catalan- and Spanish-speaking ...
  • Escudero Mancebo, David; Aguilar Cuevas, Lourdes; Vanrell, Maria del Mar; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (Elsevier, 2012)
    A set of tools to analyze inconsistencies observed in a Cat_ToBI labeling experiment are presented. We formalize and use the metrics that are commonly used in inconsistency tests. The metrics are systematically applied to ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Oliva, Salvador; Palmada, Blanca; Serra, Pep; Blecua, Beatriz; Llach, Sílvia; Oliva, Victòria (Universitat de Barcelona, 2001)
    Aquest estudi analitza el procés de producció de dues síl·labes que es troben en/nposició de xoc accentual en català i descriu les principals estratègies de resolució/nque utilitza la llengua en aquests contextos. En primer ...
  • Esteve Gibert, Núria; Pons Gimeno, Ferran; Bosch, Laura; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2014)
    This study explores the temporal coordination between gesture and speech by addressing two main questions: (1) Are speakers sensitive to the misalignment between gesture prominence and prosodic prominence? (2) Is this ...
  • Crespo Sendra, Verònica (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2011-10-10)
    El propòsit d’aquesta tesi doctoral és aprofundir en l’estudi de la fonologia entonativa dialectal del català a partir de l’anàlisi experimental de diferents tipus de modalitats oracionals. Així doncs, d’una banda, pretén ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Cabré, M. Teresa (Maria Teresa), 1947-; Vanrell, Maria del Mar (Publicacions de l’Abadia de Montserrat; Institut de Filologia Valenciana (Univ. València), 2010)
  • González Fuente, Santiago (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2017-07-10)
    This dissertation takes an integrated approach to the study of audiovisual cues to verbal irony. While pragmatic studies have mainly focused on the role of the discourse context in irony detection, little is known about ...
  • Kushch, Olga (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2018-03-09)
    Previous research has shown that gestures are beneficial for language learning. This doctoral thesis centers on the effects of beat gestures– i.e., hand and arm gestures that are typically associated with prosodically ...
  • Rohrer, Patrick Louis; Delais-Roussarie, Elisabeth; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (Frontiers, 2020)
    Previous work has shown how native listeners benefit from observing iconic gestures during speech comprehension tasks of both degraded and non-degraded speech. By contrast, effects of the use of gestures in non-native ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Llanes-Coromina, Judith; Vilà-Giménez, Ingrid; Kushch, Olga; Borràs-Comes, Joan (Elsevier, 2018)
    Though the positive effects of iconic gestures on word recall and comprehension by children have been clearly established, less is known about the benefits of beat gestures (rhythmic hand/arm movements produced together ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Igualada Pérez, Alfonso; Esteve Gibert, Núria (Elsevier, 2017)
    Although research has shown that adults can benefit from the presence of beat gestures in word recall tasks, studies have failed to conclusively generalize these findings to preschool children. This study investigated ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Llanes-Coromina, Judith; Rohrer, Patrick Louis (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    The aim of this study is to assess whether a brief training with rhythmic beat gestures helps L2 pronunciation in a reading aloud task with high school students. In a between-subjects pretest-posttest design, a total of ...
  • Ortega-Llebaria, Marta; Vanrell, Maria del Mar; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010)
    In unaccented contexts, formant frequency differences related to vowel reduction constitute a consistent cue to word stress in English, whereas in languages such as Spanish that have no systematic vowel reduction, stress ...
  • Armstrong, Meghan Elizabeth; Andreu, Llorenç; Esteve Gibert, Núria; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (De Gruyter, 2016)
    This research explores children’s ability to integrate contextual and linguistic cues. Prior work has shown that children are not able to weigh contextual information in an adult-like way and that between the age of 4 and ...
  • Roseano, Paolo; González Condom, Montserrat; Borràs Comes, Joan Manel, 1984-; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2016)
    This study investigates how epistemic stance is encoded and perceived in face-to-face communication when language is regarded as comprised by speech and gesture. Two studies were conducted with this goal in mind. The first ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, 1992)
    The majority of Romanists have recognized that the Romance languages that have developed a length conirast in the vocalic system have done so through a process called open-syllable lengthening, that is, stressed vowels in ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Cravotta, Alice; Kushch, Olga; Rohrer, Patrick Louis; Vilà-Giménez, Ingrid (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    In this paper, we advance a comprehensive gesture labelling proposal which highlights the independence of the prosodic and semantic properties of different gesture types and at the same time challenges a simplistic definition ...
