Abstract

The global F 0 shape of Japanese speech is predicted by phrasal accent attributes and adjacent phrasal environment using three-layered neural nets. Three F 0 values of each minor phrase are used for the global shape description, and their prediction is carried out in each major phrase determined by right-branching syntactic boundaries. Through prediction experiments using short and ordinary sentence samples, it is quantitatively confirmed that the global F 0 shapes are predicted fairly well in both samples and that additional controls are necessary for finer prediction in the ordinary sentence samples.
