Example 4. Syllable onsets in “And when I wake,” visualized in Praat. Top two levels are the stereo signal from the release Next two levels are phonetic features—phones above labeled in the arpabet phonetic language and words below. These are entered manually such that vowel onsets (i.e., “AE1,” “EH1,” “AY1,” and “EY1”) are annotated at the midpoint of the initial increase of the vowel’s amplitude. The lowest level is a ruler in which hash marks are 25ms, roughly the resolution of the just noticeable duration.
