Welcome to the Common Prosody Platform project website

The Common Prosody Platform (CPP) is a computational platform that implements major theories and models of prosody. CPP aims at a) adapting theory-specific assumptions into computational algorithms that can generate surface prosodic forms, and b) making all the models trainable through global optimization based on automatic analysis-by-synthesis learning. CPP allows examination of prosody in much finer detail than has been previously done and provides a means for speech scientists to directly compare theories by testing the computational model derived from them. So far, four theories have been included in the platform:

  1. Autosegmental-metrical (AM) theory
  2. Command-response (CR) model
  3. Task dynamic (TD) model
  4. Parallel encoding and target approximation (PENTA) model
