We propose an approach to modeling Chinese tonal patterns, focusing on the basic fundamental frequency (F 0 ) patterns characterized by the contextual linguistic features that can be directly extracted from text. We analyze tonal patterns as sparse target points (tonal F 0 peaks and valleys) and represent them in parametric form within the framework of a functional F 0 model. The relationships between the target points and underlying linguistic features are trained using classification anddoi:10.1109/icassp.2009.4960568 dblp:conf/icassp/NiSSN09 fatcat:fkv7ff4rwzerfinl6hzqdmb4nm
