Inventory of intonation contours for text-to-speech synthesis

Tetyana Lyudovyk, Valentyna Robeiko

This paper presents an intonation model which determines intonation contours over intonation phrases. The model is described by four elements: communicative type of an intonation phrase; number of accent groups in it; position of the nuclear accent group in it; and set of target intonation points. Individualization of the model is based on semiautomatic analysis of speaker database. The model was implemented in unit selection TTS system for Ukrainian.
