Abstract
Modeling intonation, i.e., specifying adequate fundamental frequency (F0) contours, remains a challenging task for speech synthesis systems. This paper discusses the development of a system for phonetically specifying intonation contours for German. It deals with the problem of translating an phonological representation of intonation - namely the tone-sequence model - into a concrete phonetic model. Design options and evaluation methods are discussed.
