Machine extraction of the acoustic correlates of stress presupposes the ability of the machine to dectect each syllable in a speech passage. Knowledge about the extent of the vocalic portion of each syllable is required for such correlates as syllable duration, or changes in intensity and voice fundamental frequency within the syllable. The syllable detection program described in this paper was developed to provide such syllable information.
