Italian text analysis

A morpho-syntactic analyzer

A morpho-syntactic analyzer was constructed as part of a project aimed at developing an automatic text-to-speech system for the Italian language. This chapter describes the most important steps and the related problems involved in the automatic linguistic analysis of the Italian language. 


The process of analysis can be divided into three main phases: morphological analysis, phonetic transcription, and morpho-syntactic parsing. The morphological analyzer processes each word by means of context-free grammars to obtain all morphologic and syntactic features. Then, the phonetic transcription module locates the stressed syllables of each word and performs grapheme to phoneme conversion. Finally, syntactically related words are marked to form a suitable basis for pitch contour determination.

How was contructed a morpho-synthactic analyzer?

  • It was constructed as a part of a project aimed at developing an automatic text to speech system for the Italian language.
  • It was constructed as a part of a project aimed at developing an automatic text to speech system for the Chinese language.

  • Five
  • Three
