Chapter Summary

In order to assess the global comparability of syllabification judgments obtained with different experimental procedures, this chapter investigates the syllabification of intervocalic consonants and clusters in Russian, a language that has received little attention in the experimental literature on syllabification. The author tested the same set of stimuli using five different syllabification tasks. The tasks varied along various dimensions, which allowed assessing the impact of a number of task-specific factors on syllabification judgments. Correlatory analyses show that fewer than half of the possible combinations of two tasks yield positively correlated results. The results of the present study further reveal that some of the factors traditionally argued to affect syllabification in Russian may not necessarily play any statistically significant role and that the significance of frequency-based factors is not uniform among the five experimental procedures.
