Book Information


Title: The Role of Prosody in Affective Speech
Edited By: Sylvie Hancil
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 97

The goal of this volume is to present a collection of papers illustrating
state-of-the-art research on prosody and affective speech in French and in
English. The volume is divided into two parts. The first part focuses on
the sociolinguistic parameters that can influence the manifestation and the
interpretation of affective speech in prosody. The second part relies on
the way emotion recognition is implemented in synthesis systems and how
machine applications can contribute to a better description of emotion(s).
