In this study Hidden Markov models are employed for the automatic classiication of pitch accents in German utterances. A sim-pliied version of the tone sequence model (i.e. a linguistic theory of pitch accents) is applied. In this approach only two of the nuclear tones (rise, fall) are used. They are represented by continuous density Hidden Markov models.(More)
