For the Slovene language, only a few studies of segmental
prosodic parameters performed on a representative speech corpus
have been reported so far. The most comprehensive and carefully
designed is the work of T. Srebot-Rejec, providing an insight into
Slovene vowel duration and fundamental freqency on the
segmental as well as on the suprasegmental level (under the
influence of sentence intonation) .
We used the study of T. Srebot-Rejec as a reference and repeated some of her measurements of vowel duration and fundamental frequency, with a new speaker. We wanted to check whether we could verify her findings and explanations on the nature of word accent and vowel duration in Standard Slovene. On the other hand, we were looking for a relevant parameter set for prosody prediction in the SQEL Slovene Speech Synthesis System S5 [2,3].
