  1. 1. Towards a discourse-based model of English sentence intonation

    Author : Merle Horne; Allmän språkvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; intonation; discourse; text-to-speech; information focus; pitch; F0; grammatical functions; coreference; prominence; baseline; phonological grid; F0 range; declination; contrastive prominence; syntactic parallelism; phonological phrase; rhythm rule; sentence stress; constrative stress; Raddoppiamento Sintattico; Monosyllabic Destressing; intonational phrase; speech chunk; speech synthesis;

    Abstract : English non-expressive, declarative sentence intonation is examined in a discourse context. A rule system, geared to a text-to-speech context is developed which assigns sentence prominences related to information focus. READ MORE

  3. 3. Putting the Singing Voice on the Map : Towards Improving the Quantitative Evaluation of Voice Status in Professional Female Singers

    Author : Anick Lamarche; Sten Ternström; Thomas Cleveland; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Voice Range Profile-Phonetogram-Singing voice-Performance-Clinical assessment-health-voice disorder-self-perception-proprioceptive feedback; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : Diagnostic and evaluative methods used in voice care are mostly designedfor the speaking voice, and are not necessarily directly applicable to thesinging voice. This thesis investigated the possibilities of fine tuning, improvingand quantifying the voice status assessment of the singer, focusingespecially on the Western operatic female voice. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Charm of Excited Glue : Charmonium in e+e– and ppbar collisions

    Author : Agnes Lundborg; Ulrich Wiedner; Helmuth Koch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physics; hadron; charmonium; PANDA; antiproton; annihilations; spin-parity exotics; gluonic excitations; BES; hybrid; glueball; resonances; radiative decays; electromagnetic transitions; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis treats the mass range of charmonium states and excited gluonic fields in two experiments, BESII and PANDA, and outlines a phenomenological model that connects them.In BESII, e+e– form a charmonium initial state, which is utilised as a source for secondary particles.

  5. 5. Clinical and Experimental Aspects of Phonetogram Analysis

    Author : Leif Åkerlund; Lunds universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otorhinolaryngology; subglottal pressure.; sound pressure level; semitones; phonetogram contours; phonetogram; intensity; Fundamental frequency; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen;

    Abstract : A phonetogram is a diagram displaying sound pressure levels (SPL) of softest and loudest possible phonation over the entire fundamental frequency range (F0) of a voice. Female singers mean phonetogram had a significantly higher upper contour than female nonsingers. READ MORE
