The Expression and Recognition of Emotions Through Prosody
Spoken Language Research Institute / CREST, JST (Japan Science and Technology), Japan
Emotion is an integral component of human speech, and prosody
is the principle conveyer of the speaker's state. In this study we
show how specific emotional states are expressed in the prosody
of spontaneous speech. The significance of prosodic meaning to
communicating judgements, attitudes, and the cognitive state of
the speaker makes it essential to emotion-intention tracking and
to natural-sounding synthesis systems.
