In this talk I will describe the newly developed statistical phrase accent model for generation of natural and expressive intonation contours in speech synthesis. I will briefly mention the conventional approaches and drawbacks of existing intonation models for speech synthesis. I will introduce the proposed statistical model, an associated training algorithm and performance on some tasks.

This is joint work with Dr. Alan Black and Dr. Luis Oliveira.
