ICSLP 2002 - September 16, 2002, Denver Colorado
Chilin Shih and Greg Kochanski
The tutorial will summarize the state of the art of prosody research with an emphasis on intonation (f0). We will present it in a data- and knowledge- driven fashion, starting with speech data and physiology, and building towards quantitative models. We will cover a wide range of intonation phenomena, discussing the variations, the cause of variations, and their implications to prosodic modeling.
The physical bases of prosody: what gestures and acoustic features carry information, and how acoustic measurements relate to physiology.
Prosody as a communications channel: We will discuss what information is carried by prosody and show examples (from several languages) with variations. Linguistic theories will be discussed where applicable.
