This tutorial paper addresses foreign-language support in corpus-based concatenative text-to-speech systems. We give an overview of application domains where strictly monolingual speech synthesis is not sufficient and where multilingual text-to-speech is required or highly desirable. We describe two approaches to multilingual corpus-based speech synthesis:(More)
We present a harmonic-plus-noise modelling (HNM) strategy in the context of corpus-based text-to-speech (TTS) synthesis, in which whole speech phonemes are modelled in their integrity, contrary to the traditional frame-based approach. The pitch and amplitude trajectories of each phoneme are modelled with a low-order DCT expansion. The parameter analysis(More)
