A prosodic labeling support system has been developed. Large-scale prosodic databases are strongly desired for years, however, the construction of databases depend on hand labeling, because of the variety of prosody. We aim at not automating the whole labeling process, but making the hand labeling work more efficient by providing the labelers with the appropriate support information. The methods of auto-generating initial phoneme and prosodic labels utilizing linguistic information are proposed and evaluated. The experimental results showed that more than 70% of prosodic labels were correctly generated, and proved the efficiency of the proposed methods. The results also yielded the useful knowledge to support the labelers.
