Abstract
In this work we verify with accuracy that acoustically transcribed durations of linguistic units at several scales (phonemes, words and Breath Groups) comply with log-normal distribution. To do this we have used a very well-known Corpus which contains conversational speech by native English speakers gathering approximately 3•10^5 words with time-aligned phonetic labels. Secondly, we explain this log-normal distribution using a new model: a Non-interacting Cascade Approach (NICA) model. This N...
