Spectral and durational unstressed vowel reduction: an acoustic study of monolingual and bilingual speakers of Bulgarian and Turkish

Abstract:

This thesis is an extensive acoustic study of a range of phonetic and phonological phenomena traditionally referred to as unstressed vowel reduction. Five geographically contiguous varieties of two typologically distinct and genealogically unrelated languages, Bulgarian and Turkish, are investigated: two standard varieties, West Bulgarian and Istanbul Turkish, and three varieties from northeast Bulgaria: the Bulgarian and Turkish of a bilingual community, and monolingual East Bulgarian.
