The main acoustic cues of lexical stress in Greek, i.e. duration and intensity, were analyzed in all three speakers with dysarthria. Additionally, the use of fundamental frequency as a cue for stress was assessed in Anna, the effects of phonation patterns on the acoustic prominence relations of stressed and unstressed syllables were assessed in Chris and the role of vowel quality in stress signaling was assessed in Maria.
