Structuring F0 prominences (melisms): an analysis of the statistical concordances between four French speakers

Geneviève Caelen-Haumont

F0 prominences having the reputation deserved to vary in great proportion, most of the studies until now avoided this problem, restricting their analysis to the use of extrema (minimum / maximum), and/or the F0 range. This work presented here tried to exceed these limits: this paper aims indeed at presenting the statistical results describing the F0 prominences structuration over a corpus of 4 French female speakers.

More precisely the first part proposes a new perspective on the inner struture of the F0 prominences, and the second part focusses on the statistical results which are in concordance within the 4 speakers.
