Predicting segmental durations for Dutch using the sums-of-products approach

Esther Klabbers, Jan van Santen

This paper presents the results of a duration study performed for Dutch using the sums-of-products approach [1]. With a relatively small corpus of 297 sentences, a duration model could be constructed with an RMSE of 27 ms, which compares well to similar models for English, French and German. In an evaluation study the predicted durations of the duration model were compared to those predicted by a rule-based duration model.
