A Chinese female voice Database for the MBROLA synthesizer
--------------------------------------------------------------
Description of the CN01 diphone database

CN01 is created by LIU Ning. Voice by XIE Chen and WANG Jie Jing.  Deep thanks to Professor Thierry Dutoit, Professor Horacio Vaggione, and Professor Anne SEDES.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Phonotactics

The CN01 diphone database consists of 520 diphones, recorded from two native Female singers of Mandarin. The diphones are segmented and organized according to the rule of Pinyin.

1. To speak a chinese syllable, we can use a combination of an initial over a final, for example:

Hao: h-ao.

2. Or, we can speak Ai, An, A, E, etc. without of the initial.

3. There is a special modification, for the Compound finals, I put the first vowel of the final in the initial. In the final, there will be only one vowel. That allows us to easily sing a chinese syllable, because there is a single vowel in the final, for example:
To speak: Huan: hu-an, Kua: ku-a, Shuo: shu-o etc.
To sing: Hua: hu-a-a-a-a-a-a, Biao: bi-ao-ao-ao-ao etc.

a, ai, an, ang, ao, e, ei, en,eng, er, o, ou, i, ie, ll (i - zhi, chi, shi, ri), u(wu), v (yu-u), ong, in, ing, ii (i – zi, ci, si), ui, iu, ue, un.
