Tagging syllables

Brigitte Krenn

Syllabification is viewed as a tagging task. Phonemes constituting a syllable are treated like words in a sentence. Each phoneme is annotated with informa- tion representing the phoneme itself, and its posi- tion within a syllable. Within a number of tagging experiments, the specificity of linguistic information represented in the tag set is varied. The annotation scheme which encodes an onset-nucleus-coda model is shown to lead to the best tagging results.
