Text analysis for speech synthesis is described in relation to the information needed in speech production. This includes a pronouncing dictionary and letter-to-sound rules, morphological analysis and accent assignment, and syntactic analysis. Prosody control rules (fundamental frequency control and segmental duration control) are examined. Speech units for synthesis and parametric representation of speech signals are discussed. Applications and development tools are considered.
