Prosody Information Processing

definition: Prosody can be defined as a feature of speech which extends over more than one segment and is often synonymous with 'suprasegmentals'. Prosodic features include fundamental frequency (F0),relative duration and intensity, and spectral quality. They determine the rhythm and intonation of utterances.
