2006 (English)In: Proceedings from Fonetik 2006, Lund, June, 7-9, 2006 / [ed] Gilbert Ambrazaitis, Susanne Schötz, Lund: Lund University , 2006, 9-12 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
In this paper, we present measurements of visual, facial parameters obtained from a speech corpus consisting of short, read utterances in which focal accent was systetnatically varied. The utterances were recorded in a variety of expressive modes including Certain, Confirming,Questioning, Uncertain, Happy, Angry and Neutral. Results showed that in all expressive modes, words with focal accent are accompanied by a greater variation of the facial parameters than are words in non-focal positions. Moreover, interesting differences between the expressions in terms of different parameters were found.
