We have formerly proposed a statistical model of moraic transitions of fundamental frequency (F 0 ) contours and showed its e ectiveness for prosodic boundary detection and accent type recognition. This model represented F 0 contours of prosodic words to simultaneously detect and recognize prosodic word boundaries and accent types. This paper proposes a method where prosodic word F 0 contours are modeled separately according to their accent types and presence/absence of succeeding pauses. An… CONTINUE READING
