Linguistic Pitch Analysis Using Functional Principal Component Mixed Effect Models

  title={Linguistic Pitch Analysis Using Functional Principal Component Mixed Effect Models},
  author={John A. D. Aston and Jeng-Min Chiou and Jonathan P. Evans},
Fundamental frequency (F0, broadly “pitch”) is an integral part of human language; however, a comprehensive quantitative model for F0 can be a challenge to formulate due to the large number of effects and interactions between effects that lie behind the human voice’s production of F0, and the very nature of the data being a contour rather than a point. This paper presents a semi-parametric functional response model for F0 by incorporating linear mixed effects models through the functional… CONTINUE READING
