Prosodic control of unit-selection speech synthesis: A probabilistic approach
One problem in concatenative speech synthesis is how to incorporate prosodic factors in the unit selection. Imposing a predicted prosodic target is error-prone and does not benefi...

Recent progress in prosodic speaker verification
We describe recent progress in the field of prosodic modeling for speaker verification. In a previous paper, we proposed a technique for modeling syllable-based prosodic feature...

Auditory universal accessibility of data tables using naturally derived prosody specification
Abstract Text documents usually embody visually oriented meta-information in the form of complex visual structures, such as tables. The semantics involved in such objects result in...

Coping imbalanced prosodic unit boundary detection with linguistically-motivated prosodic features
Continuous speech input for ASR processing is usually presegmented into speech stretches by pauses. In this paper, we propose that smaller, prosodically defined units can be ident...

Prosody-Based Automatic Segmentation of Speech into Sentences and Topics
A crucial step in processing speech audio data for information extraction, topic detection, or browsing/playback is to segment the input into sentence and topic units. Speech segm...

Extraction and representation of prosodic features for language and speaker recognition
In this paper, we propose a new approach for extracting and representing prosodic features directly from the speech signal. We hypothesize that prosody is linked to linguistic uni...

Design and evaluation of prosodically-sensitive concatenative units for a Korean TTS system
This paper describes the design and evaluation of prosodically-sensitive concatenative units for a Korean text-to-speech (TTS) synthesis system. The diphones used are prosodically...

Prosody and the Resolution of Pronominal Anaphora
In this paper, we investigate the acoustic prosodic marking of demonstrative and personal pronouns in taskoriented dialog. Although it has been hypothesized that acoustic marking ...

Sentence-Internal Prosody Does not Help Parsing the Way Punctuation Does
This paper investigates the usefulness of sentence-internal prosodic cues in syntactic parsing of transcribed speech. Intuitively, prosodic cues would seem to provide much the sam...

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...
