English Intonation and Computerized Speech Synthesis. Technical Report No. 287.
Levine, Arvin
This work treats some of the important issues encountered in an attempt to synthesize natural sounding English speech from arbitrary written text. Details of the systems that interact in producing speech are described. The principal systems dealt with are phonology (intonation), phonetics, syntax, semantics, and text-view (discourse). Technical details of a full-speech synthesis system are included; appendixes provide loudness and fundamental frequency graphs for selected sentences, data on peak pitches from four separate readers who read the same paragraph, and the audio text of a lesson from an elementary college course in logic.
