Abstract: This paper reports experiments on speech production showing that secondary stress in Brazilian Portuguese (BP) can be best described as phrase-initial prominence cued by greater durationand pitch accent excursion in initial position. It also reports a perception experiment in which clicks were associated to consecutive V-to-V positions in stress groups. Mean click detectionRTs are gradient, but show no influence of initial lengthening. RTs near the phrasally stressed position are shorter and almost 60 of RT variance can be accounted for by produced timing patterns.
