Two commercially available systems for the determination of selenium by hydride-generation and atomic-absorption spectrometry were compared. Chemical and physical parameters were optimized both for an electrothermally heated closed atom-cell method and a flame-heated open-cell technique. Both systems were evaluated with respect to performance and(More)
In this paper we discuss an algorithm for the assignment of pitch accent positions in text-to-speech conversion. The algorithm is closely modeled on current linoulstic accounts of accent placement, and assumes a surface syntactic analysis of the input. It comprises a small number of heuristic rules for determining which phrases of a sentence are to be(More)
