  4. HPG (Hierarchical Prosodic Phrase Grouping) Framework of Discourse Prosody--Fluent Speech Prosody Negsst2007

  5. Introduction of HPG (1/2) • From bottom up, output fluent speech prosody includes lexical prosody (tone), syntactic prosody (intonation) and discourse prosody (cross-phrase semantic associations). • From top down, the HPG framework represents hierarchical constraints discourse, syntactic and lexical information. Thus, higher level prosodic units constrain and govern lower level ones; lower level units are subject to and associated by higher level units. • Phrases in speech flow should NOT be treated as independent, unrelated prosodic units. Rather, intonation units are subordinate prosodic units subject to HPG specifications. Negsst2007

  6. Introduction of HPG (2/2) 4.Output fluent speech prosody results from cumulative layered contributions from lexical, syntactic and discourse information. Therefore, prosody does NOT stop at phrase intonation. 5. According to HPG specifications, variations of phrase intonations across speech flow are systematic and predictable. Negsst2007

  11. Cross-Phrase Prosodic Features and Templates • Corpus investigations and quantitative analyses enabled us to • 1. obtain quantitative evidences of cumulative contributions of prosodic layers to output prosody, • 2. derive cross-phrase hierarchical templates corresponding to every prosodic layer in the following 4 acoustic correlates (Tseng et al, 2004; 2005; 2006) 1. F0 contour templates 2. Duration cadence templates 3. Intensity distribution patterns 4. Pause cadence templates Negsst2007

  13. The Fujisaki Model Negsst2007

  14. Fujisaki Model (1984)—Intonation model • Unit—syntax defined simple sentence • F0 curve corresponding to single simple phrase as defined by syntax can be generated • Generation of gradually declining baselines of F0 curve can be decomposed into the phrase components (Ap) and accent components (Aa) Evidences obtained: Japanese, English, German, Mandarin, Thai, Vietnamese…etc. Negsst2007

  15. The Fujisaki Model (1/2) F0=Base frequency+ Phrase components+ Accent components Negsst2007

  16. Base Freauency Phrase components Accent components :timing of the ith phrase command :onset of the first accent command in the jth command pair :duration of the first accent command in the jth command pair :magnitude of the ith phrase command :magnitude of the ith phrase command The Fujisaki Model (2/2) Negsst2007

  17. Phrase components = 0.01~0.05 Negsst2007

  18. Accent components = 0.1~0.5 Negsst2007

  19. Simulation of Mandarin Prosody with Fujisaki Model Simulated Result Accent components Aa Phrase components Ap Fb Negsst2007

  20. Simulating/Generating F0 Curves with Fujisaki Model—Auto-extraction of Parameters (other approaches vs. our approach) Negsst2007

  21. Mixdorff (2000, 2003)-- Interpolation and Smoothing (1/3) • Intermediate F0 values for unvoiced speech segments • Microprosodic variations are smoothed out. • Feature: very close simulation, one phrase at a time. Negsst2007

  22. Mixdorff (2000, 2003)–High-Pass Filtering and Component Separation (2/3) • highpass filter(stop frequency at 0.5 Hz) • The output of the highpass filter(HFC) • low frequency contour (LFC): containing the sum of phrase component and Fb. Component Separation • Fb : the overall minimum of the LFC • Phrase components : the residual of LFC subtracted Fb Negsst2007

  23. Mixdorff (2000, 2003)-- Optimizing simulated F0 curve (3/3) • Hill-Climbing Methodology • Construct a sub-optimal solution that meets the constraints of the problem • Take the solution and make an improvement upon it • Repeatedly improve the solution until no more improvements are necessary/possible Negsst2007

  24. Gu (顧文濤2006 )Generating F0 Curves Using Speech Sample from CORSPRO_05 1.Gu did NOT consider information above phrases. 2.Gu compared generation results with HPG labeled results. Negsst2007

  25. Gu (2006)—Simulation of F0 Curves w/out Higher Level and Boundary Information Features: • Local minimum of LFC are considered and inserted with Ap • F0 curves and boundaries are generated Negsst2007

  26. Gu (2006) observed large variations of Aps exist1. between two speakers, 2. among boundaries We observed: 1. The magnitude of Ap inserted in larger boundaries (B4, B5) are similar. 2. Similar patterns exist in BGs or PGs. Negsst2007

  27. Why Higher Level Discourse Information? (1/2) Gu (2006)’s traditional approach without higher level information Focus: 1. Isolated phrase intonations and boundaries are generated one at a time. 2. Simulation and fine tuning of each generation. Problems: 1. Large variations of Aps exist between speakers and among boundaries. 2. Variations can not be predicted and/or solved; concatenation of each generation can not yield patterns for technological implementation. Negsst2007

  28. Why Higher Level Discourse Information? (2/2) Tseng et al approach with higher level discourse information (HPG) Focus: • Prediction of fluent speech prosody, i.e., cross-phrase F0 curves and boundary break Advantages: • 1.Multiple phrase intonations and boundaries can be predicted according to HPG specifications. 2. Output prosody is NOT concatenation of independent isolated phrase intonations. 3. Between-speaker and among-boundary Ap variations are systematic and predictable, therefore, are NOT considered variations by HPG framework. 4. Useful to technology development (speech synthesis). Negsst2007

  29. 2 Experiments • Hypothesis • Predictions of phrase intonation curves can be improved with higher level information because HPG specifies cross-phrase associations. • Cumulative contributions from prosodic layers can provide useful information. • Implications • technology development Negsst2007

  30. Speech Data • Sinica COSPRO 08 • Carrier paragraph: • A 30-syllable, 3-phrase complex sentence representing a short PG was constructed • A target single syllables was embedded in three PG positions, i.e., PG-Initial, -medial and –final. • “△是一個常見的字,一般人常把△字掛在嘴邊,講話時動不動就會提到△” • Speaking rates: • 289 and 308 ms/syllable for M054C and F054C • Target syllable analyzed: • Tone 1 Negsst2007

  31. Experiment 1 Goals: 1. Patterns of Ap could be derived from speech data. 2. Evidence of interaction between phrase command and higher-level prosodic units could be found. 3. Evidences found could predict cross-phrase F0 allocation in speech flow. Negsst2007

  32. Distribution of speech data Range of values of Ap from phrases produced by female speaker F054c in three PG related positions are presented. Negsst2007

  33. Distribution of speech data A schematic representation of the distribution of Ap of F054c where the horizontal axis represents values of Ap and the vertical axis represents number of Ap occurrence. Negsst2007

  34. Results The expected cell mean of predictions with and without the PG effect. The Figure is a schematic representation of the patterns of phrases after PG effect is taken into consideration. Negsst2007

  35. Examples without PG-effect with PG-effect One expected cell mean can’t approach LFC well, PG-initial and PG-final especially. Negsst2007

  37. What Does Higher Level Discourse Information Mean? Swapping PG-initial and PG-final Original F0 t Exchanged F0 Negsst2007 t

  38. Further Evidences of HPG, Systematic and Predictable—Same Base Form and Different Distribution Yield Different Output Prosody Styles Negsst2007

  39. Speech Data • Mandarin rhymed classical writing • Style • regular • semi-regular • irregular • WeatherBroadcast • Style • irregular Negsst2007

  40. Classification of Stylistic Variations regular semi-regular irregular Negsst2007

  41. Predictions of Ap from Higher Level information (B3, B4, B5) PPh BG PG Negsst2007

  42. Distributions of Layered Contributions in Each Style (Male) Rhymed classical writingm056 regular semi-regular irregular Weather broadcast m054 (irregular) The more regular the style, the bigger the planning templates, and the more governing from higher level information Negsst2007

  43. Distributions of Layered Contributions in Each Style (Female) Rhymed classical writingf054 regular semi-regular irregular Weather broadcast f054(irregular) The more regular the style, the bigger the planning templates, and the more governing from higher level information Negsst2007

  44. PPh Contributions in Different Styles Negsst2007

  45. Contributions of BG Layer in Different Styles Negsst2007

  46. Conclusions 1. Lexical, syntactic and discourse prosody ALL contribute to output prosody. Interactions are necessary, systematic and predictable from higher level considerations. HPG accounts for prosody of fluent continuous speech. 2. How a semantic complete speech paragraph begins, holds and ends across the phrases within is specified by HPG related positions: PG-Initial, PG-Medial and PG-final 3. Further evidences from Mandarin rhymed classics substantiated HPG as a base form for both planning and processing of fluent speech prosody. 4. Stylistic variations are built on the same base form with varied contribution distribution. Negsst2007
