Pfitzinger, Hartmut R. and Reichel, Uwe D. (2006): Text-based and Signal-based Prediction of Break Indices and Pause Durations. Speech Prosody 2006, Dresden, 2. - 5. Mai 2006. [PDF, 188kB]


The relation between symbolic and signal features of prosodic boundaries is experimentally studied using prediction methods. Text-based break index prediction turns out to be fairly good, but signal-based prediction and pause duration prediction perform worse. A possible reason is that random signal feature variations, as usually produced by humans, are hard to predict.
