Formal expressive indiscernibility underlying a prosodic deformation model

Ioana Suciu, Ioannis Kanellos, Thierry Moudenc

We are here concerned by the setting up of a model and a formalism for expressive speech synthesis under the paradigm of a corpus-based approach. Our objective is to apply prosodic expressive forms, acquired from natural human-reading recordings, on a new textual matter. We outline a general model for speech expressiveness. Then we deal with some formal aspects of expressive representation. We point out the core transformational aspects and the indiscernibility criteria allowing comparisons between forms. We finish by some interpretational issues of such an approach.
