Advanced Prosody Modelling
Abstract. A formal prosody model is proposed together with its application in a text-to-speech system. The model is based on a generative of abstract prosodic functionally involved units. This grammar creates for each sentence a structure of immediate prosodic constituents in the form of a tree. Each prosodic word of a sentence is assigned with a description vector by a description function and this vector is used by a realization function to create appropriate intonation for the prosodic word. Parameters of the model are automatically set up using real speech data from a prosody corpus, which is also described.
