Pitch elbow detection


For the purpose of automatic and consistent alignment of tonal targets relative to phonetic segments we introduce one established and three new methods for automatic pitch elbow location. We further examine, whether it is beneficial to constrain the detectors to certain elbow shape types. An evaluation on hand-labeled data showed deviations from 32 to 58 ms between predicted and reference elbow locations.
