In theory, parametric acoustic synthesis can be bettered by articulatory synthesis, but this has not happened yet because of the thinness of supporting theory and models of articulation. Parametric acoustic synthesis enables the widest range of manipulation of the acoustic signal which leads straight to excellent prosody and rendering of expression. If expression is sometimes disappointing this is almost always due to inadequacies in the expression model rather than the manipulability of the synthesiser parameters.

The final average column in the table is calculated from several measured values sampled across the example segment. For each of the segments needing target representations in the language, a set of target parameter values is provided. A final parameter in the target representation would be the average duration of this particular segment in the language. Averages of data are not the data themselves–they result from a data reduction process and are therefore abstractions from the data. So these target representations are abstract and never actually occur.

7KB, with all values fully editable. The file of parameter values had no effect on the bandwidth of the final synthetic waveform: this was determined by the characteristics of the synthesiser. Unit Selection Systems: the Data-Driven Approach Although all practical approaches benefit from the prior existence of a coherent underlying theory, the unit selection method is not a theory-driven approach, but a data-driven approach–there will be experiments to discover what works, rather than develop a theory which might explain what works.
