This article presents an outline of the prosodic constituent structure which will be incorporated in a linguistic preprocessor forming part of a text-to-speech system for generation of intonation in Swedish restricted texts. It further discusses the structure of a number of algorithms (including a word-class tagger, a complex-word identifier and a prosodic parser) which enable the generation of the assumed prosodic structure.
