Title: A Synthesizer for Non Familiar Language with Low Resources and Few Speakers

Abstract: Our past work has been primarily focused to design a speech synthesizer for the Spanish Language. The Spanish is the official language of Mexico since the XVI century. However, today, we are working with an ancient Mexican Language called ‘Tenek’ or ‘Huasteco’ (for Spanish Language). We want to apply a concatenative Statistical Parametric Synthesis method, because we have a small corpus. Especially focusing in the grammatical rules because of the high importance they have in the synthesizer’s design. The origins of Huasteco are from a Family Language very different from Spanish or other European languages. In consequence, the challenge is interesting and difficult. Maybe, this work could help to design speech synthesizers of another ancient languages.
