The ESCA Workshop on Speech Synthesis
September 25-28, 1990
A dialogue information system under development in the SUNDIAL project incorporates an interface between a message generator and a British English synthesis-by-rule system, to ensure that knowledge relevant to the determination of prosody is passed on in the form of textual markers. Syntactic or pragmatic in origin, the markers receive their prosodic interpretation on the synthesis side of the interface.
