This paper presents a method for generating F 0 contours for a speech synthesis system using the Tilt intonation theory ((10], 9]). The Tilt theory ooers an abstract description of natural F 0 contours which may be derived automatically from natural speech. Given a speech database labelled with Tilt events, this paper shows how that data may be used to… (More)
