    This article focuses on the importance of sentence accents in speech recognition. In processing speech, listeners use all cues available in order to identify the message as rapidly as possible. Some of these cues are present in the prosodic structure of utterances. Sentence accents in particular...

    Sentence boundary detection (SBD), also known as sentence segmentation decides where a sentence begins and ends. Previous method of SBD is either done by linguistic approach or acoustic approach; or combination of both approaches. Even though linguistic approach generally performed better than...

    Spoken language, in contrast to written text, provides prosodic information such as rhythm, pauses, accents, amplitude and pitch variations. However, little is known about when and how these features are used by the listener to interpret the speech signal. Here we use event-related brain...
