NounEdit

pausa (uncountable)

  1. (linguistics, phonology) The hiatus between prosodic units, e.g. at the end of a sentence.
    • 1954, Johannes Hendrik Kramers, Analecta orientalia: posthumous writings and selected minor works:
      The rule is that in the pausa a word must never end on a short vowel, but it may do so in the context.
    • 1998, Pádraig MacCoisdealbha, The Syntax of the Sentence in Old Irish, →ISBN:
      Besides, the pausa endposition may have served to highlight the informational value of the substituendum.
    • 2004, Gerhard Endress, Rüdiger Arnzen, & Jörn Thielmann, Words, Texts, and Concepts Cruising the Mediterranean Sea, →ISBN:
      In pausa you say 'ih, in the jussive la- ta'ih, analogous to 'ih, la- ta'ih. And since t' is complete as two letters, the tongue utters both of them in the pausa.
    • 2005, Éva Ágnes Csató, Bo Isaksson, & Carina Jahani, Linguistic Convergence and Areal Diffusion: Case Studies from Iranian, page 245:
      For instance, the perfect in -miš (> -mi before pausa) always has the high unrounded vowel, the abstract noun suffix appears in a single variant +luġ, the infinitive is -maġ and the instrumental +ine.
