The ESCA Workshop on Speech Synthesis
September 25-28, 1990
A syllabic structure model is proposed, as a tool for defining a detailed phonemic transcription. The microprosodic features (duration and loudness) of the defined phonological units are estimated by statistical measures on an automatically segmented speech database. The use of these units in a text-to-speech concatenative synthesiser is discussed.
