This paper presents a speech rhythm production model able to generate segmental acoustic duration from several levels of dynamical coupling between linguistic and production-related subsystems. A probabilistic algorithm for phrase stress assignment accounts for both prominence and constituency prosodic relations by considering the coupling between a… CONTINUE READING
