A Post-processing Approach to Statistical Word Alignment Reflecting Alignment Tendency between Part-of-speeches

Jae-Hee Lee, Seung-Wook Lee, Gum-Won Hong, Young-Sook Hwang, Sang-Bum Kim, Hae-Chang Rim
2010 International Conference on Computational Linguistics  
In this paper, we attempt to mitigate such problem by reflecting alignment tendency between part-of-speeches to statistical word alignment.  ...  Statistical word alignment often suffers from data sparseness. Part-of-speeches are often incorporated in NLP tasks to reduce data sparseness.  ...  It attempts to answer the following questions: 1) Can the information regarding POS alignment tendency affect the post-processing of word alignment?  ...

EEG Correlates of Song Prosody: A New Look at the Relationship between Linguistic and Musical Rhythm

Reyna L. Gordon, Cyrille L. Magne, Edward W. Large
2011 Frontiers in Psychology  
Song composers incorporate linguistic prosody into their music when setting words to melody, a process called "textsetting."  ...  for processing music and speech.  ...  Post hoc tests revealed that misaligned led to a larger difference in the RTs (p = 0.009) compared to well-aligned, and varied vs. wellaligned also approached significance (post hoc p = 0.0535).  ...

Elliot Pollack, Elizabeth D. Casserly
2017 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Conversational partners align on a variety of speech factors including word choice, syntax, and rate of speech.  ...  The discrepancy between Speakers' divergence in the acoustic measure and their rated convergence in the perceptual measure reveals a potential hierarchy of speech factors that we use to assess alignment  ...  Thank you to Olivia Wang, Rachel Scheub, and Annelise Pedro for helping me to pilot my experiments.  ...

Intonation in Spanish Classroom-style Didactic Speech

Rajiv Rao
2011 Journal of Language Teaching and Research  
In this case, phonetic cues are produced to create special emphasis on words that are of particular interest to students when answering oral comprehension questions on a written exam.  ...  The concluding remarks hope to spark future perceptual studies that will help us gain a more complete picture of how didactic speech benefits learners with low levels of proficiency.  ...  An example of a word illustrating narrow focus tendencies in didactic speech is provided in Figure 3 .  ...

Cascade or Direct Speech Translation? A Case Study

Thierry Etchegoyhen, Haritz Arzelus, Harritxu Gete, Aitor Alvarez, Iván G. Torre, Juan Manuel Martín-Doñas, Ander González-Docasal, Edson Benites Fernandez
2022 Applied Sciences  
Leveraging on deep learning approaches to natural language processing, recent studies have explored the potential of direct end-to-end neural modelling to perform the speech translation task.  ...  Speech translation has been traditionally tackled under a cascade approach, chaining speech recognition and machine translation components to translate from an audio source in a given language into text  ...  , with WER scores assumed to reflect the percentage of ASR errors that may impact a cascaded MT model.  ...
