By J. C. Wells

Abstract: A study of emotional speech has resulted in a collection of some five hours of recorded material. The analysis of this material has required computer-based annotation incorporating prosodic and paralinguistic transcription as well as the coding of various psychological variables. A version of the prosodic and paralinguistic transcription devised by Crystal and Quirk was developed for use within the xwaves environment. This paper describes this transcription system and its application.
