Connected Speech

Robert Mannell

A connected speech module in a TTS system applies assimilation, reduction, deletion and insertion rules to a series of phonemes. Usually, these rules are applied at word boundaries as word internal processes are generally already taken into account by the GTP dictionary, GTP morphology (affix) processor and the GTP rules.
