The purpose of this paper is to investigate the similarities in form and function of prosody among diverse languages: - the pause - Fo declinaison tendency and its control - natural Fo range and its control - Resetting of the baseline - the alternance between Fo rise and fall - Fo continuation rise and final fall - intensity fall - final lengthening the differences between the languages seem to be...

This paper provides an overview of the role of intonation (prosody) in speech communication, with special focus on the perception of intonation contours. Why there is no complete theory? why is it complex? Syntactical, information, modal, attitudinal, emotional, indexical aspects of ntonation are reviewed. A tentative psychophonetic code is proposed.

This article concerns French rhythm. Rhythm (repetition and alternation of similar or opposite patterns) may be perceived at three different levels: the breath group (or intonation group), the prosodic word and the syllable. The breath group level (or intonation group) consists in the repetition and alternation of two highly contrastive global tunes, which resembles Jones' Tune 1 and Tune 2 for En...

This study was designed to determine which objective acoustic or aerodynamic parameters allowed a homogeneous group of patients with unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) to be distinguished from an age-matched and smoking-matched control group and to search for linear correlations between the objective parameters and the subjective breathiness ratings. Eight patients with recent-onset UVFP and 1...

Objective: To assess whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows the vocal tract (VT) area function to be determined for a normal male speaker. Method: VT shapes were acquired using MRI during sustained production of French points vowels: /i/, /a/, /u/. Cross-sectional areas were measured from a series of planes spaced at intervals of 1 cm along the length of the VT and were used as input in a...

The present communication concerns the use of prosodic parameters in automatic speech recognition (ASR), i.e. the feasibility of automatically extracting prosodic information from a set of acoustic measurements done on the signal, and the incidence of integrating such information on the performance of ASR. Prosodic parameters include pauses and contrasts in pitch, duration and intensity between su...

This report describes the organization of the fundamental frequency (F 0) variations in French sentences. It is based on the analysis of the Fo patterns of declarative sentences read by six native speakers of French. The prosodic-syntactic structure has several levels: the prosodic sentence, the prosodic sense-group and the prosodic word. It describes the different strategies used by the speakers,...

This paper aims (i) to summarise essential facts about the syntactic prosody of French as seen within the broader picture of French prosody, (ii) to provide a cross-linguistic perspective, by bringing out characteristics which sharply distinguish French from English, and drawing their implications for the thorny issue of cross-linguistic prosodic description, which arguably holds the key to substa...
