Generation of multi-syllable nonsense words for the assessment of Korean text-to-speech system

Cheol-Woo Jo, Kyung-Tae Kim, Yong-Ju Lee

In this paper we propose a method to generate a multisyllable nonsense word set for the purpose of synthetic speech assessment and applies the wordset to assess one commercial text-to-speech system. Some results about the experiment is suggested and it is verified that the generated nonsense wordset can be used to assess the intelligibility of the synthesizer in phoneme level or in phonemic environmental level. From the experimental results it is verified that such multi-syllable nonsense wordset can be useful for the assessment of synthesized speech.
