A model of segment (and pause) duration generation for Brazilian Portuguese text-to-speech synthesis [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
This work presents and evaluates a model of segmental duration generation for Brazilian Portuguese where the notion of macrorhythmic unit is the starting point to drastically simplify duration assignment and to allow pause insertion as an integrated procedure of generation. This model is preferred to random assignment with the same error distribution. Some aspects of rhythm phonetics and phonology are also discussed that constitute a first step to the understanding of the prosodic component of the language under study.
