Abstract:

In this talk I will review some approaches used for modeling the Fundamental Frequency, the F0 contour. I will detail the F0 modeling strategy currently used in Clustergen, CMU’s statistical parametric Synthesis framework. I will describe our recent work attempting to improve the baseline modeling strategy by incorporation of longer range (Syllable and Phrase) features into the F0 model. We use the TILT model of Intonation for this work, and I will briefly describe the tilt framework and mention the alternative frameworks used in Intonation modeling.
