Abstract
In this paper, we examine the dependencies of voice source pa-
rameters F0(fundamental frequency), Ee(maximal glottal flow
change), RK(glottal symmetry/skew), LIN(value related to
source spectral tilt) and H
1 - H
2 (difference of formant-corrected
magnitudes of the first two source spectral harmonics) on prosodic
features such as pitch accents, stress, and sentence type and the
