  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Vilà-Giménez, Ingrid (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    Recent research has shown that when preschoolers listen to a speaker who is simultaneously making beat gestures, this favors their recall and comprehension of what they have heard and also boosts their narrative performance. ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Baills, Florence; Zhang, Yuan (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    Previous research has shown that rhythmic training enhances phonological speech processing (e.g., [1, 2, 3, 4]). Yet little is known about whether rhythmic training can also help to improve pronunciation in a second language ...
  • Esteve Gibert, Núria; Borràs Comes, Joan Manel, 1984-; Swerts, Marc; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2014)
    There is an increasing consensus to regard gesture and speech as parts of an integrated communication system, in part because of the findings related to their temporal coordination at different levels. In general, results ...
  • van Maastricht, Lieke; Krahmer, Emiel; Swerts, Marc; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    This study investigates the acquisition of second language (L2) rhythm by speakers of Dutch and Spanish, two languages that traditionally are considered to be rhythmically different. Specifically, it investigates whether ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Hübscher, Iris; Garufi, Martina (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    While prosody has been shown to act as a syntactic bootstrapper in early language acquisition, little is known about the role that prosody plays in the later development of a child’s ability to communicate pragmatic ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Cravotta, Alice; Busà, Maria Grazia (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    Previous studies have investigated the effects of the inability to make hand gestures on speakers’ fluency; however, the question of whether encouraging speakers to gesture affects their fluency has received little attention. ...
  • Armstrong, Meghan Elizabeth; Esteve Gibert, Núria; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2014)
    In this study, we examine how 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old Catalanacquiring children are able to make use of audio (intonational) and visual (facial gesture) modalities in the comprehension of speaker disbelief, as well as the ...
  • Kushch, Olga; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    Research in audiovisual prosody has shown that typically beat gestures are temporally integrated with prominent positions in speech (e.g., [1, 2]). There is independent evidence that both prosodic prominence (e.g., pitch ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Roseano, Paolo (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    For years linguists have noted that intonation patterns encode similar meanings as sentence-final discourse particles across languages. A question that arises is what is the division of labor between the two and whether ...
  • Vanrell, Maria del Mar; Armstrong, Meghan Elizabeth; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2014)
    The overarching goal of this paper is to advance on the understanding of how evidential meanings are expressed in natural languages. Specifically, we aimed to investigate what type of meaning was encoded in yes-no questions ...
  • Hübscher, Iris; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Wagner, Laura (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    While children’s acquisition of lexically encoded politeness formulas has been investigated to a certain extent, little is known about their sensitivity to prosody and facial expressions as cues to politeness. The goal of ...
