Abstract: Because of its contribution to meaning and its effects on sentence organization,
intonation plays an important role in speech, both natural and synthetic. When
intonation is viewed as a sequence of tones aligned with the syllable chain, the
task of generating an appropriate intonation contour rises the question about
the factors which determine the use and position of tones, as well as that about
the interaction between factors. This paper studies the lexical, semantic,
syntactic and rhythmic factors. It presents a general framework in which the
effects of these factors are made explicit in the form of successive modifications
to the prosodic skeleton of the utterance. The paper finally proposes a
procedure for tone assignment that takes into account the interaction between
the rhythmic and syntactic factors.
