Control of prosodic focus in corpus-based generation of fundamental frequency based on the generation process model

Keiko Ochi, Keikichi Hirose, Nobuaki Minematsu

A method was developed for generating sentence F0 contours, when a focus is placed in one of bunsetsu of an utterance. The method is to predict differences in F0 model commands between with and without focus utterances, and applies them to the F0 model commands predicted beforehand by the baseline method. The validity of the method was proved by the experiment on F0 contour generation and speech synthesis.
