The expression and recognition of emotions through prosody

Li-chiung Yang

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.
