Automatic Labeling of Prosody

The paper proposes a framework for automatic prosody labeling. The labeling involves detection of the location of accented syllables and phrase boundaries, and recognition of pitch accent and boundary tone types. A number of classification models are designed to perform these tasks on the basis of small vectors of acoustic features. The models achieve high accuracy and their performance is comparable to the results reported in other studies on automatic prosody labeling and to interlabeler consistency in manual labeling of prosody.
