UNIT I INTRODUCTION                                                   9

Introduction – knowledge in speech and language processing – ambiguity – models and algorithms – language – thought – understanding – regular expression and automata – words & transducers – N grams

UNIT II SPEECH MODELLING                                        9

Word classes and part of speech tagging – hidden markov model – computing likelihood: the forward algorithm – training hidden markov model – maximum entropy model – transformation-based tagging – evaluation and error analysis – issues in part of speech tagging – noisy channel model for spelling

UNIT III SPEECH PRONUNCIATION AND SIGNAL PROCESSING                                                                  9

Phonetics – speech sounds and phonetic transcription – articulatory phonetics – phonological categories and pronunciation variation – acoustic phonetics and signals – phonetic resources – articulatory and gestural phonology

UNIT IV SPEECH IDENTIFICATION                                9

Speech synthesis – text normalization – phonetic analysis – prosodic analysis – diphone waveform synthesis – unit selection waveform synthesis – evaluation

UNIT V SPEECH RECOGNITION                                    9

Automatic speech recognition – architecture – applying hidden markov model – feature extraction: mfcc vectors – computing acoustic likelihoods – search and decoding – embedded training – multipass decoding: n-best lists and lattices- a* (‗stack‘) decoding – context-dependent acoustic models: triphones – discriminative training – speech recognition by humans

                                                                                                     TOTAL : 45 PERIODS


On Successful completion of the course ,Students will be able to

  • Create new algorithms with speech processing
  • Derive new speech models
  • Perform various language phonetic analysis
  • Create a new speech identification system
  • Generate a new speech recognition system
