This study aims to find alternative phrase boundary symbolizations in written text to enable consistent pause production. Shorter phrases and many pauses are beneficial for successful presentations and the communication of information structure. Texts with alternative symbolizations (dashes, bars, spaces, line breaks, hashtags, and arrows) are used to indicate minor and major phrase boundaries. Results suggest that these methods can elicit more consistent pause production than normal punctuation, especially using line breaks.
