Concatenative intonation systems model the intonation contours as the concatenation of small natural units extracted from suitable contexts. The special characteristics of this type of models make it difficult to include some factors whose effect overcomes the phonic group domain. In this paper one of those factors, the f0 reset related to the sentence internal pauses, is addressed.
