Sixth International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
Read and spontaneous discourses are two different but very significant speech styles to be investigated. So phonetic labeling on read and spontaneous discourse corpora are made one is ASCCD, a 10 hours read discourse corpus and the other is CASS, a 4 hours spontaneous discourse corpus. First the principles and conventions of transcription are presented. Then, these two speech styles are compared from phonetic and syntactic point of view, including the statistic results of different phonetic units got from the annotated corpora.
