Abstract: Analysis of speech is important for identification of emotional state of person which has different parameters like pitch, formant frequencies, MFCC etc. These parameters are used for extraction of features from speech. For unit selection based text-to-speech system, syllabification acts as a backbone. Based on different structures of different languages syllabification rules also vary. The main aim of this study is to examine and analyze the syllabification rules for Assamese language. Here we are designing the syllabic structure to form the corresponding syllables of Assamese words which later can be integrated into a text-to-speech system.

Keywords: MFCC, formant frequency, pitch.
