Segment timing in certain Austroasiatic languages: implications for typological classification

This study analyzed segment timing in Mon, Khmer, and Vietnamese, segmentingspeech data into vocalic, consonantal, voiced, and unvoiced intervals.Results show that variation in vocalic duration plays an important role inlanguage classification, with differing vowel characteristics resulting indiffering timing patterns. Khmer, a restructured language, has vowel lengthdistinctions resulting in the highest variation of vocalic durations.Mon, a register language, follows Khmer with the distinctionin phonation types. Vietnamese, a tonal language in which some tones co-occurwith phonation, has...
