Intonation Pattern and Duration Differences in Imitated Speech

Zetterholm, Elisabeth LU (2002) In Proceedings of Speech Prosody 2002 p.731-734
Abstract
The present paper is a study of one impersonator and one of

his voice imitations. The aim of the study was to investigate

how he changes his own voice and speech behavior in order to

get close to the target speaker’s. A comparison is made

between three recordings of the same text material: the target

speaker, the voice imitation and the impersonator’s own voice

and dialect. The results presented in this paper focus on mean

fundamental frequency, intonation pattern and duration

differences. It is obvious that the impersonator changes his

dialect and articulation in the voice imitation.
