Project: Machine Learning algorithms for linguistic aspects of
Basically I am to develop a (properly researched) Grapheme-to-Phoneme Convertor capable of
generating suprasegmental prosodic information. Grapheme-to-Phoneme Conversion
is translating (ASCII) text into its phonetic transcription (the
pronunciation cues in the dictionary. Suprasegmental prosodic
information is usually paraphrased speech melody, and involves rhythm,
intonation, and pauses.
I studied Electrotechnics at Twente University (1988-1990) and at the
Hogeschool Enschede (1990-1992). The next two years ('till the end of
'94) I studied (theoretical) Psychology at the Utecht University and
graduated on a thesis on deictic reference in spatial localization. I
worked 9 months in a revalidation research centre on categorizing
signs from Dutch Sign Language before I started on this project.
