Synthesising attitudes with global rhythmic and intonation contours

Yann Morlec, Gérard Bailly, Véronique Auberge

We present here a trainable generative model of French prosody. We focus on the sentence level and design SNNs able to generate both rhythmic and intonation contours for diverse attitudes. First results of a perceptual test show that listeners are able to retrieve the right definition of attitudes by listening to synthetic PSOLA stimuli.
