Computing Prosody: Computational Models for Processing by D. R. Ladd (auth.), Yoshinori Sagisaka, Nick Campbell, Norio

By D. R. Ladd (auth.), Yoshinori Sagisaka, Nick Campbell, Norio Higuchi (eds.)

This e-book provides a set of papers from the Spring 1995 paintings­ store on Computational ways to Processing the Prosody of Spon­ taneous Speech, hosted through the ATR analyzing Telecommunications Re­ seek Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan. The workshop introduced jointly lead­ ing researchers within the fields of speech and sign processing, electric en­ gineering, psychology, and linguistics, to debate features of spontaneous speech prosody and to indicate ways to its computational research and modelling. The booklet is split into 4 sections. half I offers an outline and theoretical history to the character of spontaneous speech, differentiating it from the lab-speech that has been the focal point of such a lot of prior analyses. half II specializes in the prosodic gains of discourse and the constitution of the spoken message, half ilIon the new release and modelling of prosody for computing device speech synthesis. half IV discusses how prosodic details can be utilized within the context of computerized speech reputation. each one part of the e-book begins with an invited review paper to situate the chapters within the context of present examine. We believe that this number of papers deals attention-grabbing insights into the scope and nature of the issues all in favour of the computational research and modelling of actual spontaneous speech, and anticipate that those works won't merely shape the foundation of extra advancements in each one box but in addition merge to shape an built-in computational version of prosody for a greater realizing of human processing of the complicated interactions of the speech chain.

3 Role of Generative Models It may be necessary here to clarify what I mean by a model. The word has been used in different meanings in different academic disciplines. In natural sciences, a model means a formal description of the essential characteristics of the structure of a mechanism or the function of a process. In humanistic sciences, especially in linguistics, a model means a specially designed representation of concepts or entities used to explain their structure or function (Crystal [Cry80J).
