Grammars for Sentence into Phrase Segmentation: Punctuation Level

Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 607)

Abstract

This paper deals with so-called punctuational phrases that make up sentences and with their marking according to intonation type in Belarusian electronic texts using NooJ. Such markings may be used for the implementation of an algorithm for intonationally-coloured text-to-speech synthesis in order to obtain expressive synthetic speech.

Keywords

  • Punctuational phrases
  • Intonation-type marking
  • Belarusian language
  • Expressive text-to-speech
  • NooJ
