Abstract:

An extensive study on the parameters influencing the pitch of a standard speaker in articulatory speech synthe-sis is presented. The speech synthesiser used is the articu-latory synthesiser in PRAAT. Categorically, the repercus-sion of two parameters: Lungs and Cricothyroid on the average pitch of the synthesised sounds are studied. Sta-tistical analysis of synthesis data proclaims the extent to which each of the variables transforms the tonality of the speech signals.
