Articulatory Interruptions

Symbol _

Lexical items can be interrupted by various phenomena such as pauses, breathing, hesitations, slips of the tongue, mispronunciations etc. To mark the event, we add a subline followed by a blank space at the point of interruption. Then we insert the interrupting element and finally conclude with the remainig part of the interrupted word which is preceded by another blank space and subline.
