An interactive environment, implemented in Prolog, has been designed for developing applications and conducting research in text-to-speech conversion. A special notational formalism has been devised for relating linguistic knowledge to the acoustic parameters which signal prosodic information. In the present paper it is shown how this formalism can be used for the implementation of some models of Swedish prosody as e.g., the power-law model.
