Exploration strategies for articulatory synthesis of complex syllable onsets

High-quality articulatory speech synthesis has many potential applications in speech science and technology. However, developing appropriate mappings from linguistic specification to articulatory gestures is difficult and time consuming. In this paper we construct an optimisation-based framework as a first step towards learning these mappings without manual intervention. We demonstrate the production of syllables with complex onsets and discuss the quality of the articulatory gestures with reference to coarticulation.
