We describe a new model for the formal representation of the rhythmic tendencies of natural languages. The algorithm is a modification of PVI, proposed by Grabe and Low . The model was tested on a fairly substantial corpus of Italian semispontaneous productions, and its outcome compared with that yielded by two well-known algorithms (Ramus  and PVI).
