By examining acoustic marks of Czech stress, this paper attempts to provide an answer to the question of whether or not perceived accents in the Czech language have an objective existence. A neural network is used to predict the position of accents without lexical information. Three parameters (intonation, duration and intensity) are considered(More)
The present paper examines three methods of intonational stylization in the Czech language: a sequence of pitch accents, a sequence of boundary tones, and a sequence of contours. The efficiency of these methods was compared by means of a neural network which predicted the f0 curve from each of the three types of input, with subsequent perceptual assessment.(More)
In this paper we examine cases of non-final nucleus (or sentence stress) in English, Czech and Hungarian. These three languages differ substantially with respect to word order rules, prosodic plasticity (ability to signal information structure by shifting the nucleus) and the degree of grammaticalization in nucleus position. Recordings of parallel texts are(More)
