Language Identification Using Excitation Source Features by K. Sreenivasa Rao,Dipanjan Nandi

By K. Sreenivasa Rao,Dipanjan Nandi

This ebook discusses the contribution of excitation resource info in discriminating language. The authors specialize in the excitation resource element of speech for enhancement of language identity (LID) functionality. Language particular beneficial properties are extracted utilizing varied modes: (i) Implicit processing of linear prediction (LP) residual and (ii) particular parameterization of linear prediction residual. The e-book discusses how in implicit processing strategy, excitation resource good points are derived from LP residual, Hilbert envelope (magnitude) of LP residual and part of LP residual; and in specific parameterization technique, LP residual sign is processed in spectral area to extract the suitable language particular positive factors. The authors additional extract resource gains from those modes, that are mixed for reinforcing the functionality of LID structures. The proposed excitation resource gains also are investigated for LID in history noisy environments. every one bankruptcy of this publication offers the inducement for exploring the categorical function for LID activity, and accordingly talk about the easy methods to extract these positive aspects and eventually recommend acceptable types to trap the language particular wisdom from the proposed gains. eventually, the e-book speak about approximately numerous combos of spectral and resource positive aspects, and the specified types to augment the functionality of LID systems.
