The article presents a mechanism for analyzing sounding texts on the material of spontaneous texts (television interviews in Russian, German and Spanish languages). The theoretical basis for the proposed experimental approach is the theory of speech activity and research in the field of psycholinguistics. The units that are subject to be analyzed are the rhythmic - intonational parameters of speech as the ones that are essential from the point of their function in the process of generation and perception of speech. The comparative nature of the study makes it possible to identify universal and culture-bound features of spontaneous speech.
