in this paper, we present two tone recognition methods for
Chinese continuous speech and the way of integrating
methods with the HMM-based speech recognition system. The
first method we call it Gaussian Mixture Tone Models (GMTM)
method, the second is tone Clustering-Mapping (CM) method.
Both of them are statistic methods. At the end of the paper, we
will also provide the comparison result of these two methods with
the tone classification accuracy tested on the Chinese continuous
speech database of national "863 project.
