This paper presents a model to predict the phrase commands of the Fujisaki Model for F0 contour for the Portuguese Language. Phrase commands location in text is governed by a set of weighted rules. The amplitude (Ap) and timing (T0) of the phrase commands are predicted in separate neural networks. The features for both neural networks are discussed. Finally a comparison between target and predicted values is presented.
