<p>The objective of this thesis is to address the issues in the analysis, estimation and incor-poration of prosodic parameters for neutral to expressive speech conversion. The prosodic parameters like instantaneous pitch, duration and strength of excitation are used as the expression dependent parameters. For the expressive speech analysis, refinements in the conventional methods are proposed to accurately estimate the prosodic parameters from different expressions. The variations in the prosodic parameters for different expressions</p>
