An intonation model for German was derived from the results of a perception experiment. A pitch accent may have up to three features. In a prosodic data base these features were assigned to pitch accents automatically. A rule system was developed and integrated in a speech synthesis system, and a pilot experiment indicated that differences in the feature structure result in different interpretations.
