Dissertation summary

"Entendre le vieillissement langagier : études longitudinales de profils prosodiques", the ongoing thesis by Julie Kairet (2016–2020), aims at analyzing the speech of older speakers from a linguistic point of view and focusing on the longitudinal change on the level of prosody. Based on the literature’s comments about the slowdown of speech rate when aging (Linville 2001, Schwab, & Avanzi 2015…), the project now focuses on variation of speech rate and pauses location. Using LangAge Corpora, the production of ten speakers will be analyzed through time (2005–2015).
