5. 2 Normalized RMS Amplitude (NRMS) In irregularly phonated speech, there are generally fewer glottal pulses in a given time frame than in regularly phonated speech. This can be captured by the RMS amplitude (intensity), normalized by the RMS amplitude of a longer interval. Surana and Slifka [1] divided the RMS intensity of each frame by the intensity calculated over the entire sentence and then took the mean of these values in order to compute the NRMS cue for the vowel. If the intensity level changes along the sentence, then normalizing with the sentence RMS can become misleading.

However, since similar parameters are used among emotions the final model will be more accurate. Moreover it was shown in [5] that the naturalness of synthesized speech generated from style dependent and mixed models is almost the same, but the number of output distributions of the mixed style model is clearly smaller, so it is more attractive when an efficient solution is required. Because of this mixed style modelling is used in this work and a new contextual factor was added to the existing ones to distinguish the three emotional speaking styles.
