who's who


Generates spoken monologues on different vine grapes (Riesling, Pinot noir, ...) and their respective wines. Main focus is on prosody generation. The system is a concept-to-speech generation system containing stages adapted from Levelt's model of language production. Modules are present for all the major stages of language production and output containing fine-grained information about prosodic features is produced as final result. The system is implemented in Haskell and can produce output suitable for a variety of speech synthesis components.
