Abstract
In this paper we describe present work on multimodal prosody by
means of simultaneous recordings of articulation and head movements. Earlier
work has explored patterning, usage and machine-learning based detection of
focal pitch accents, head beats and eyebrow beats through audiovisual recordings.
Kinematic data obtained through articulography allows for more comparable
and accurate measurements, as well as three-dimensional data. Therefore,
our current approach involves examining speech and body movements concurrently,
using electromagnetic articulography (EMA). We have recorded large
amounts of this kind of data previously, but for other purposes. In this paper, we
present results from a study on the... (More)

phrasing and find tendencies for upward movements occuring before and
downward movements occuring after prosodic boundaries. (Less)
