Prosody and Prosodic Models

Home Chilin Shih Greg Kochanski gpk@bell-labs.com

Overview The tutorial will summarize the state of the art of prosody research with an emphasis on intonation ($f_0$). 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 and duration phenomena, discussing the variations, the cause of variations, and their implications to prosodic modeling.
