Quelle(s) mesure(s) de similarité prosodique comme évaluation de l'imitation ?

Abstract : Imitative proficiency across speakers is highly variable. Studies on imitation underline how difficult it is to find measurable cues to assess a successful imitation. In this exploratory study, f0 contours collected from imitations tasks are tested in a double approach: objective measurements of prosodic similarity using two measures reported in the literature and perceptive evaluation by a panel of 15 naïve listeners. Our first results indicate a good correlation between the two approaches and they raise the question concerning the selection of the measurable factor assessing a successful imitation at a tonal level. Furthermore, these results underline an imitative proficiency’s variability across speakers while opening perspectives in the domain of phonetic correction using the Verbo Tonal Method.
