Abstract
Modeling accurate speech organs are vital to speech synthesis. This paper introduces a construction method for geometric model of spoken lips based on a MRI database. Volume images of articulators were acquired by MRI on one Chinese subject uttering a corpus of sustained articulations. Then 3D models of each organ were annotated from relevant image slices. Finally linear component analysis was used to extract main control parameters from the 3D models of the spoken lips. The result shows that these control parameters could effectively represent the position and motion of spoken lips with a minor reconstruction error (less than 0.15cm).
