Killing Times traces the logic of the death penalty across a range of sites. Starting with the struggles of American courts to articulate what methods of execution constitute “cruel and unusual punishment,” Wills goes on to show the ways that technologies of death have themselves evolved in conjunction with fraught ideas of cruelty and instantaneity, from the guillotine ...

A Speech Rhythm Comparison Of English Speakers From Hawai‘I And California, 2018 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
A Speech Rhythm Comparison Of English Speakers From Hawai‘I And California, Lana Lobato Aljader
There has been a long tradition, since at least 1945, of research into the rhythm of speech. Considered a universal feature of language, speech rhythm is often broken down into two main categories, stress-timed and syllable-timed. Languages are assumed to fit into, or fall along a continuum between, these two categories. This study compares the recorded speech of two politicians speaking Californian English, a so-called stress-timed language, and two politicians speaking Hawai‘i English, which has yet to be categorized. Influencing languages, regional dialect, and social impacts are discussed. The software DARLA and the program Praat were used to assist ...
