Abstract:The approach of the project made possible the study and elaboration of the formalized model of the Romanian phonology. The study was performed at the theoretic level and a complete set of phonemes, characteristic for the Romanian language, has been established. The Text-To-Speech (TTS) synthesis system is based on a thorough linguistic analysis of the text, its phonetic transcription and the transformation of the phonemes into diphonemes through acoustic parameters. Phonetical transcription is necessary due to the fact that the form of the Romanian written texts differs considerably from the spoken form, which asks for a complex processing to be performed before the effective transformation of the phonemes (or diphonemes, respectively) into graphemes. The scientific results obtained are more than promising. Thus, an extremely important chain closes, in bringing classical linguistics close to the contemporary information technology: linguistics receives new and modern tools for study, and the new results obtained will contribute to the polishing of the informatics systems.
