Criteria for labelling prosodic aspects of English speech
Bagshaw, Paul C
An algorithm is described to abstract acoustic parameters of a speech waveform to give a scalar measure of the relative stress and pitch movement of each group of phones which can consist of a single prominence. A method of identify such groups using acoustic information is given. The abstracted parameters are used to locate sentential stress and pitch accents in English speech. These are compared with a hand-labelled prosodic transcription.
