ProZed : A speech prosody analysis-by-synthesis tool for linguists

  title={ProZed : A speech prosody analysis-by-synthesis tool for linguists},
  author={Daniel Hirst},
. This paper describes a tool designed to allow linguists to manipulate the prosody of an utterance via a symbolic representation in order to evaluate linguistic models. Prosody is manipulated via a Praat TextGrid which allows the user to modify the rhythm and melody. Rhythm is manipulated by factoring segmental duration into three components: (i) intrinsic duration determined by phonemic identity (ii) local modifications encoded on the rhythm tier and (iii) global variations of speech rate… CONTINUE READING
