Automatic Blind Syllable Segmentation for Continuous Speech
Villing, Rudi and Timoney, Joseph and Ward, Tomas (2004) Automatic Blind Syllable Segmentation for Continuous Speech. In: Irish Signals and Systems Conference 2004, 30 June - 2 July 2004, Queens University, Belfast.
In this paper a simple practical method for blind segmentation of continuous speech into its constituent syllables is presented. This technique which uses amplitude onset velocity and coarse spectral makeup to identify syllable boundaries is tested on a corpus of continuous speech and compared with an established segmentation algorithm. The results show substantial performance benefit using the proposed algorithm.
