Project A3-A (2006-2010)

Incremental Specification in Speech 

This SFB project A3 will focus on the incremental specification of speech at the acoustic, phonetic, and prosodic level. Our goal is to develop some general principles and computational procedures for incremental specification, which we will then apply to the specification of the distinctive features of speech such as landmarks and pivots, and of the speaker's specific features in order to investigate the phonetic and prosodic representation of speech.
