Intonation: Theory, Models, and Applications
This paper presents a reversible model for the stylisation and the symbolic coding of macroprosodic fundamental frequency patterns. Prosodic labels are generated automatically from the speech signal and can be used to regenerate a synthetic F0 curve which is as close as possible to the original curve. The model has been tested successfully for 20 speakers in French and Italian.
