In this paper, the prosodic control strategy is discussed under
the collectivity of Chinese TTS system design. A four level
(syllable, prosodic word, prosodic phrase and sentence) pitch
modification and multiplicative duration model are suggested.
Although the prototype of models was formed in 1994, the
subsequent results of concerned research based on large speech
databases are also represented, which effectively advance to
perfect the prosody control mode of the Chinese TTS system.
