Abstract : Phrases that are alike in numbers of syllables may not consume an equal length of time as spoken. Approximately 500 five-syllable phrases were read by 18 speakers. Mean duration/phrase was determined. This paper classifies the phrases according to these values. Experimenters may select equivalent phrases for use in tests that are concerned with vocal duration.
