Values of duration ratios across the observations of disyllabic words significantly differed from those of trisyllabic words both in the phrase- and sentence-final positions (p = 5E-10, F= 40.03, Fcrit. = 3.86 for the phrase-final position; p = 2E-21, F =98.26, Fcrit.
The length asymmetry between the nuclei of the two syllables was very highly significant in both phrase- and sentence-final positions (p = 2.19E-15, F = 132.09, Fcrit = 4.04; p = 1.32E-14, F = 112.43, Fcrit = 4.03, respectively).
For the phrase-final position, statistically significant differences were found between vowel durations of first and second syllables: (p = 0.01, F = 6.69, Fcrit. = 3.98), as well as of the third and fourth syllables (p = 0.02, F = 6.13, Fcrit.
The difference between the values of duration for a and i is statistically significant (p = 0.001, F = 12.45, Fcrit. = 4.14 for the phrase-final position; p = 0.002, F= 11.64, Fcrit.
Statistically significant difference between vowel durations in the two series of words was observed in the data for the phrase-final position (p = 0.04, F = 4.19, Fcrit. = 3.93).
