Duration

In the Duration module, the duration of each phone is determined. It is based on normalized durations for each phone. A CART tree trained on the IMS German radio news corpus[6] determines deviations from the mean duration and can, therefore, model duration modifications due to syllable stress and phrase final lengthening.
