Analysing automatic descriptions of intonation with ICARUS

Katrin Schweitzer, Markus Gärtner, Arndt Riester, Ina Rösiger, Kerstin Eckart, Jonas Kuhn, Grzegorz Dogil

We present ICARUS for intonation — a graphical tool which allows to access automatically derived F0 features in an intuitive and user-friendly way. It can be used for data exploration and search. Tonal features can be accessed together with information from other linguistic levels; this is exemplified in two search queries where we combine the search for a specific tonal contour with a) coreference annotations and b) automatically derived syntactic annotations. Thereby we demonstrate how ICARUS for intonation bridges the gap between manual/semi-automatic analysis of relatively small, manually annotated data sets and automatic analysis of larger corpora with automatically derived features.
