Generation of pronunciation rule sets for automatic segmentation of American English and Japanese

Nicole Beringer, Tsuyoshi Ito, Marcia Neff

The goal of this paper is to create an extended rule corpus with approximately 2366 phonetic rules which model segmental variation on a three language task. The phonetic rules express at a broad phonetic level phenomena of phonetic reduction in German, English and Japanese that occur within words and across word boundaries. In order to get an improvement in automatic segmentation of regional speech variants, these rules are clustered and implemented depending on language specification in the Munich Automatic Segmentation System.
