Abstract
This project investigates the relationship of vowel duration and coda duration in modern Welsh monosyllabic words ending in a simplex consonant. Acoustic data from 16 native speakers from the two major dialectal varieties of Welsh were analysed. We found vowel duration highly predictive by coda duration, taking into account possible influences of phrase prosody, speaker and variety specific deviations. Also, prosodic prominence primarily appears to effect coda duration in Welsh.
