In this paper, we propose a hybrid approach to refine the phonetic boundaries in a Mandarin speech corpus. This approach employs different sets of acoustic features for different categories of phonetic transitions, except for the most difficult case of "periodic voiced + periodic voiced", which is therefore handled by a heuristic scheme. Several experiments are designed to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed approach.
