GROG

Breaks and grouping - structuring of speech in different communicative environments

The project is a cooperation between Umeå University and KTH. The project is headed by Eva Strangert Umeå. The purpose of this project is to model the structuring of speech in terms of prosodic boundaries and groupings in various communicative situations. The modeling aims at a structured and optimized description of the relations between the acoustic and linguistic structure on the one hand, and the prosodic/perceptual annotations on the other.

For a description of the project, see Carlson, R., Granström, B., Heldner, M., House, D., Megyesi, B., Strangert, E., & Swerts, M. (2002) Boundaries and groupings - the structuring of speech in different communicative situations: a description of the GROG project.
