German speech synthesis system developed at the Institute for
Communications Research and Phonetics , University of Bonn.
Provides conversion of input text to phonemes, automatic prediction
of stress, phrasing and pitch, and speech generation by concatenation of
small units of natural speech.
Demisyllables and similar units are used; they comprise all consonants
before the vowel and the beginning of the vowel (initial demisyllable) or
the end of the vowel and the following consonants (final demisyllable).
For example, the word 'Strolch' is formed by concatenating 'Stro' and
