Abstract

The present study investigates the influence of
prosodic structure on pre-sonorant voicing in Slovak.
Our results demonstrate that prosodic boundaries as
well as accent interact in a meaningful way with
voicing assimilation. If a major boundary intervenes,
the role of accent is eliminated, while in other
contexts the presence of contrastive focus induces
less voicing. A novel finding of the study is that
sonorant consonants and vowels differ considerably
in this assimilation process. It is also demonstrated
that pre-sonorant voicing in Slovak is categorical but
optional and is close to being completely neutralizing
