First of all I would like to know whether there is only one field in ur form
or many?
If this is the only field in ur form then u can easily do the task.
1.    Use <noinput count ...> to limit the loop.
2.    You can use <goto...form> to the same form/field if no  input occurs
this will be acting as reprompt only. (more Overheads)

I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to accomplish, but are you able to
simply play a blank audio file?  (or <prompt><break time="5s"/></prompt>) 

If there is a valid reason to have a field without any prompts, I'm sure the
list would be welcome to the suggestion.  Otherwise, you are probably at the
mercy of individual vendor interpretations of the specification.  It might
work and it might not, but if you have a certain task that needs
accomplishing, maybe a better method can be suggested. 

If you don't need to collect user input, avoid using field.  Use
<form><block> instead.  If you are collecting user input, normally you would
want to prompt them for this.  But if not, you should still be able to have
a prompt that doesn't play anything audible.

Hello. My name is Anastasia and I have a question about the specification.

In 2.4.1 there's a sentense: Each field can have one or more prompts.

Can you clear to me, whether it is possible that field have no prompts at

If this is really possible, what should I do when nomatch or noinput event
occures and I have to reprompt?

Is it an infinite loop till user says something matching a grammar, or I
should throw an error?

Thank you in advance.
