Rhythmic Organization of Mandarin Utterances — A Two-Stage Process [chapter]

We propose to add a new prosodic unit, the principle prosodic unit (PPU), into the prosodic hierarchy of Mandarin utterances.  ...  The forming of PPUs is restricted by the local syntactic constraint and the length constraint.  ...  Based on above conclusions, we can see that predicting no-break locations in a sentence is much more important than predicting the break locations in the prosodic phrasing in Mandarin.  ...

A method for generation of Mandarin F0 contours based on tone nucleus model and superpositional model

The method is based on representing a sentence logarithmic F 0 contour as a superposition of tone components on phrase components as in the case of generation process model (F 0 model).  ...  In the 2-step scheme, the phrase components are first generated and their information is added to the inputs for the prediction of tone nucleus F 0 patterns.  ...  Although several efforts are going on, corpus-based F 0 contour generation fully based on the F 0 model is less feasible in the case of Mandarin.  ...

A novel statistical linguistic feature, called punctuation confidence, is proposed in this paper for assisting in prosodic break prediction in Mandarin text-to-speech.  ...  The idea is realized in this study by first employing a conditional random field (CRF)-based model to generate a predicted punctuation and its associated punctuation confidence for each word boundary.  ...  To further improve break prediction accuracy, many studies adopted higher level syntactic features, such as word chunk [6] and syntactic tree [6] .  ...

A new duration modeling approach for mandarin speech

<span title="">2003</span> <i title="Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)"> <a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/container/sl3uzss5sfel7cb2u25ekkx4fy" style="color: black;">IEEE Transactions on Speech and Audio Processing</a> </i> &nbsp;
In this paper, a new duration modeling approach for Mandarin speech is proposed.  ...  One is the use of the same technique to model initial and final durations. The other is to replace the multiplicative model with an additive one.  ...  Notice that prosodic state represents the state in a prosodic phrase and is treated as hidden. In Mandarin, there are 5 lexical tones and 411 base-syllables.  ...

This paper proposes a maximum entropy (ME) based hierarchical model, which utilizes both text and acoustic features, to automatically label Mandarin prosodic boundaries.  ...  Index Terms-prosodic word, prosodic phrase, intonational phrase, maximum entropy  ...  Results of comparative experiments on feature selection show that, acoustic features appear to have no effect on prosodic word prediction, pitch reset does play a role in predicting prosodic phrase, and  ...

The predicted punctuations and their confidences were then combined with traditional linguistic features to predict prosodic-acoustic features for performing speech synthesis using multilayer perceptrons  ...  This idea was realized by employing conditional random-field-based models for predicting MPMs, quoted word string locations, and their associated confidences-that is, PC and QC-for each word boundary.  ...  , syntactic phrases, or sentences.  ...
