The paper analyses the notion of 'subject' from the perspective of Upani?adic and ancient Buddhist tradition. It pursues a twofold goal: a) to explore two (soteriologically) analogous but (ontologically) different approaches to Reality and b) to test the applicability of Western philosophical categories to the classical Indian framework. 'Subjectiv...

This paper concerns the bimodal transmission of emotive speech and describes how the expression of joy, surprise, sadness, disgust, anger, and fear, leads to visual and acoustic target modifications in some Italian phonemes. Current knowledge on the audio-visual transmission of emotive speech traditionally concerns global prosodic and intonational...

... Una variazione del modello originale [13][14], in cui per determinare le caratteristiche dinamiche del modello, è stata utilizzata una tecnica semi-sutomatica di minimizzazione basata sui dati cinematici reali di specifici movimenti articolatori labiali acquisiti da un sistema opto-elettronico denominato ELITE [15], è stata recentemente utilizzata, in GRETA [16][17], una faccia parlante in italiano, al fine di riprodurre più fedelmente i reali movimenti labiali coinvolti nella produzione vocale. ...
... Two different configurations have been adopted for articulatory data collection: the first one, specifically designed for the analysis of labial movements, considers a simple scheme with only 8 reflecting markers (bigger markers in Fig.2) while the second, adapted to the analysis of expressive and emotive speech, utilizes the full and complete set of 28 markers. All the movements of the 8 or 28 markers, depending on the adopted acquisition pattern, are recorded and collected, together with their velocity and acceleration, simultaneously with the co-produced speech which is usually segmented and analyzed by means of PRAAT [18], that computes also intensity, duration, spectrograms, formants, pitch synchronous F0, and various voice quality parameters in the case of emotive and expressive speech [19,20]. ...
