Computational Extraction of Lexico-Grammatical Information for Generation of Swedish Intonation

Merle Horne, Marcus Filipsson

Department of Linguistics and Phonetics, Lund, Sweden

This article presents a discussion of a number of algorithms being developed which will enable the generation of prosodic structure for Swedish restricted texts. These algorithms, including a word-class tagger, a complex-word identifier and a prosodic parser form part of a linguistic preprocessor to a text-to-speech system for generation of intonation.
