Identifying a language or an accent: from segments to prosody

Abstract : Identifying a language or an accent relies on both
segmental and suprasegmental levels: phonotactic
constraints, unit distribution and function, syllable
structure, vocal gestures and settings, global rhythm,
stress, intonational patterns, etc. How to disentangle
the influence of segmental vs. suprasegmental features
(i.e. the phoneme string vs. prosody)? The aim of this
communication is to gain insight in the contribution of
different linguistic levels to the perception of a
language or an accent, from segments to prosody .
