Test Environment for the Two Level Model of Germanic Prominence

Gregor Möhler, Grzegorz Dogil

University of Stuttgart, Institute of Natural Language Processing, Stuttgart, Germany

In this work we present a test bed designed to verify the two level model of Germanic prominence. We give an introduction to the linguistic background of the model and derive the features that the test environment should possess. Finally we describe the details of the implementation in the ESPS/xwaves1 environment. The implementation is based on resynthesis using PSOLA algorithm. As a linguistic application the Tone Sequence Model (TSM) is implemented and tested. Keywords: Prosody, Modelling of F0, PSOLA, Tone-Sequence-Model (TSM)
