The goal of this scholarship is to develop a system to evaluate the Goodness of Prosody of non-native speakers. This will include using classifiers for different types of prosodic events, such as boundaries, stresses, and tones. These shall be tuned using different types of data: first only native data of the same variety, then native data of different varieties, then non-native but proficient data. Finally, the system will be assessed by comparing its results to annotated non-native data.
