Abstract

The acoustic analysis of pauses and restarts in spontaneous speech are discussed, from the point of view of their automatic location through acoustical analysis. A large database of spontaneous speech was analyzed in terms of duration and fundamental frequency measurements, as well as spectral analysis. For recognition purposes, a simple spectral analyzer was used to identify repeated words.
