Measuring intra-speaker variability in different speaking styles

Supervisor: Dr. Catalina Torres


Speakers can modify their speech depending on the situation or their interlocutor. In this project we ask how speakers modify their speech according to speaking style. A group of speakers was recorded telling a story in two different styles, read vs spontaneous. The goal of the thesis will be to examine phonetic features that are variable or stable across speaking styles within speakers.
