- Résumé : The object of this article is a prosodic study of the French language spoken in Alsace, Belgium and Switzerland, also compared with standard French through large corpora of scripted and spontaneous speech. The data were segmented into phonemes by automatic alignment. pitch values were extracted and averaged over phonemes. Two features are addressed: initial stress (through pitch and duration correlates) and penultimate lengthening. Different patterns enable us to contrast the three varieties under investigation. Swiss speakers exhibit pitch rise and polysyllabic word onset lengthening in clitic/nonclitic sequences, while Alsatians tend to lengthen the initial vowel of nonclitic words. Belgians show prepausal penultimate lengthening.
