- cochleagram
- excitation pattern

Speech synthesis:

- from pitch, formant, and intensity
- Klatt acoustic synthesis
- articulatory synthesis

Labelling and segmentation:

- label intervals or time marks on many levels
- use phonetic alphabet
- use sound documents of almost 2 gigabytes (3 hours)

Speech customization:

- customize pitch or length contours
- filtering

Learning algorithms:

- feedforward neural networks
- stochastic and discrete Optimality Theory

- main component analysis
- discriminant analysis
