Description: A workflow for acoustic analysis of speech prosody based on continuous measurements of periodic energy and F0 (requires Praat and R). ProPer analyses cover a wide range of prosodic phenomena, including pitch contours, prominence, speech-rate and syllabic structure. The ProPer workflow provides rich visual representations and quantification procedures for prosody in speech.
