Acoustic Prosodic Features In Sarcastic Utterances

Ahmed Abu-Shnein

Abstract


The goal of the present study is to discover the acoustic features of the sarcastic utterances and what differentiates them from other types of speech. Through this research, our main concern is to detect the prosodic cues of sarcasm in comparison with the neutral type of speech. We conducted a study that was undertaken previously by other researchers like Tapperman and others, but among other spectral and contextual cues, we focused only on the prosodic cues like formants, mean pitch, intensity, energy, and duration in an effort to practically match our findings with the findings of other researchers in the field of language processing.
